ACTEW Water warns they will be undertaking work in the Kaleen and Bruce area tomorrow which may result in temporary discolouration of water at some properties.
Streets that may be impacted are those bordered by Baldwin Drive and Stockman Ave. The necessary work being undertaken by ACTEW will provide for new connections for neighbouring residential suburbs.
Whilst it is difficult to predict to what degree the water will be affected, ACTEW Water advises that any discolouration will 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.
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.
UPDATE: ACTEW Water now advise they won’t be doing the work tomorrow. They’ll try again another time when they get their act together.
