Potential discoloured water in Belconnen

April 2, 2019

Icon Water is undertaking work in the Belconnen area that may lead to some customers experiencing discoloured water.
 
Crews are currently upgrading the outlet main on Weetangera Reservoir in order to provide an additional connection point for developing areas in the Molonglo Valley. 

No customers will lose supply as a result of this work, however water may potentially be discoloured in Macquarie, Belconnen, Bruce and Kaleen.

If the water is discoloured, it will likely clear after a few minutes of running water such as with standard use. 

We do not recommend that you drink, bathe or cook with discoloured water that appears, tastes or smells objectionable. It’s better not to use household appliances, such as your dishwasher or washing machine, due to possible staining or discolouration of clothes.

Icon Water apologises for any inconvenience caused to its customers.

If customers have concerns they should call 6248 3111 (opt 1), or see more information on our website: www.iconwater.com.au/My-Home/Water-Quality/Water-discolouration.aspx
