ICON Water crews will conduct work to restore a fault within the water network caused by a burst water main that occurred in MacGregor last weekend.

Until restoration is complete, it is possible that residents in West Belconnen will continue to experience cloudy water. This milky discolouration is caused by a drop in water pressure resulting in air through the pipes, water will clear if left to sit.

If you continue to experience discoloured water after Thursday 25 August 2016, let Icon Water know by calling 02 6248 3111 and selecting option 1.

It is not recommended that you drink the water if it appears, tastes or smells objectionable.
