Temporary water discolouration possible in O’Connor

August 31, 2020

Icon Water crews will be carrying out flow and pressure testing in O’Connor on Tuesday 1 September which may lead to temporary discoloured water during and after the works. 

Velocity increases in water flow can stir up small amounts of natural sediment in the pipes which should clear with normal use within 24 hours of the works being completed.

We don’t recommend you drink water which 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.

While we will do everything we can to operate our network in a way which minimises disruption, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused due to these works and thank the community for their patience.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact our 24/7 faults and emergency hotline on 02 6248 3111 (option 3). You can also find more information on discoloured water on our website - iconwater.com.au/discolouration.
