Dirty water in the Inner South

ICON Water crews will be conducting the first stages of the cleaning process for the Narrabundah reservoir tomorrow, which may lead to some temporary water discolouration in the area from Friday May 22 to Monday May 25.

The work requires the closure of certain valves in the water network to redirect water supply and allow the reservoir to be emptied for cleaning and inspection purposes.

A change in direction of water flow can cause water discolouration due to naturally occurring sediment being stirred up within the network.

The areas that may be impacted include Narrabundah, Griffith and Kingston.

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

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.

Icon Water advises that any discolouration should clear with normal use. If you continue to experience discoloured water after Monday 25th May, let them know by calling 6248 3111 and selecting Option 1.
