ACTEW Water advises that people in Coombs may be experiencing discoloured water that is thought to have been caused by some recent essential works that took place in the suburb. They are currently investigating the issue.
The change in water colour normally occurs when the natural sediment is disturbed within the pipes causing the water to take on a brown or reddish colour.
It is not recommended that you drink the water if it appears, tastes or smells objectionable.
Residents experiencing discoloured water are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers as it may stain clothing or clog filters.
If you experience ongoing discolouration, please talk to ACTEW Water on 6248 3111 (Option 1).
