Temporary water discolouration possible in Charnwood and Flynn

July 31, 2019

op update

Icon Water crews will be carrying out essential works tomorrow, Thursday 1 August, which may impact on water quality in the suburb of Charnwood and Flynn.

Crews will flush the lines following the work, however during and after the work some residents may experience discoloured water. This is due to changes in water flow stirring up small amounts of natural sediment in the pipes. 

Water will clear with normal use within 24 hours of the works being completed. We don’t recommend that you drink water that appears, tastes or smells objectionable. 

It’s also better not to use household appliances, such as your dishwasher or washing machine, due to possible staining or discolouration of clothes.

If you have any concerns please call us on 02 6248 3111 and select option 3.
