Crews repairing water main burst in Kaleen

March 7, 2018

Icon Water crews are working to repair a burst water main on Baldwin Street, Kaleen.

Across Canberra we have more than 3,300 kilometres of water pipes underground, some of which are 100 years old. On occasion they can burst for common reasons including change in temperature or pressure. When they do, our specialist crews respond quickly to repair the burst with as little disruption as possible to return normal water supply.

Some of our customers may experience slight water discolouration due to a change in water supply. It is recommended not to use washing machines or dishwashers while water is discoloured. Should discolouration continue past tomorrow please talk to us on 02 6248 3111 (select option 3).

Icon Water would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by this burst, and thank customers for their patience while we return high quality water supply.
