ACTEW Water will be undertaking work in the central area of Canberra (Reid, Campbell and City CBD) from today through to Thursday 14 August – which may result in temporary discolouration of water at some properties.
The necessary work being undertaken by ACTEW Water will provide for upgraded water main networks to allow for developments to proceed in the city. The possible discolouration will impact on a mixture of residential and commercial properties.
ACTEW Water advises that flushing will not assist to clear the water at this time, and that any impact should clear with normal use throughout the day. If customers experience ongoing discolouration beyond Wednesday they should contact the ACTEW Water customer helpline on 6248 3111.
Residents are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers during this period of possible water discolouration, as it may stain clothing or clog filters.
