ACTEW Water is undertaking necessary work in the Mawson area this week (Thursday) which may result in temporary discolouration of water.
ACTEW’s modeling indicates that the work, which involves reversing the flow for some streets, may result in a temporary risk of discolouration in Hurley and Enderby Streets, and Aurora Close. The work will allow for new dwellings to be connected in parts of Mawson and will only affect residential areas.
While it is difficult to predict to what degree the water will be affected, ACTEW Water advises that attempting to flush the discoloured water will not assist. If customers experience ongoing discolouration beyond Thursday afternoon, please contact the ACTEW Water customer helpline on 6248 3111.
Customers are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers during this period of possible water discolouration, as it may stain clothing or clog filters.
