Necessary works may cause water outage or discolouration in Oaks Estate

October 9, 2017

Icon Water crews are conducting necessary works around midday today to repair a faulty hydrant in the network at Oaks Estate.  This may require a temporary water outage of an hour or so, and may result in temporary discolouration of water for the Oaks Estate area.

Following this repair work, an increase in the velocity or change in direction of water flow may cause water discolouration due to naturally occurring sediment being stirred up within the network. 

It is not recommended that you drink the water if it appears, tastes or smells objectionable. Customers experiencing discoloured water are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers as it may stain clothing or clog filters.

Icon Water advises that any discolouration should clear with normal use. If customers continue to experience discoloured water after today, 9 October 2017, let us know by calling 02 6248 3111 and selecting option 1.

Icon Water would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our customers in the affected area for any inconvenience this important repair work may cause.
