ICON Water crews will conduct necessary work for two new connections, as a part of the water main renewal program, in Aranda on Tuesday, 7 June 2016. This may cause some temporary water discolouration in Aranda.
“An increase in the velocity of water flow or a change in direction of water flow can cause water discolouration due to naturally occurring sediment being stirred up within the network,” a spokesperson said.
“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 Tuesday, 7 June 2016, let us know by calling 02 6248 3111 and selecting option 1.
“Icon Water would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our customers in the affected area for any short term inconvenience this important work may cause.”
