Brown water warning for Kingston and Forrest

tap water

ICON Water crews will be conducting condition assessments of water mains on Cunningham Street, Kingston and Moresby Street, Forrest on Friday, 31 July 2015, which may lead to some temporary water discolouration in the area.

“An increase in the velocity of water can cause water discolouration due to naturally occurring sediment being stirred up within the network,” a spokesperson said.

“Icon Water will endeavour to minimise any impact to the community throughout this essential work.

“It is not recommended that you drink the water if it appears, tastes or smells objectionable. Customers experiencing discoloured water are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers as it may stain clothing or clog filters.

“Whilst it is difficult to predict to what degree the water will be affected, Icon Water advises that any discolouration should clear with normal use. If you continue to experience discoloured water after Friday, 31 July 2015, let us know by calling 6248 3111 and selecting option 1.”
