Temporary water discolouration possible in Theodore

March 16, 2021

Icon Water crews will be carrying out essential works on a 300mm main to repair a fire hydrant in Theodore from 10am on Thursday 18 March which may lead to temporary discoloured water during and after the works. 

Changes 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 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. However, if your water appears clear you can continue on with your normal water use.

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.
