Actew Water is warning that they’re fiddling in the pipes out West and not to panic if your water is brown:
ACTEW Water is improving the water network for residents in MacGregor, Latham and Holt to ensure an ongoing fresh, clear water supply and lessen the need for future water supply disruptions.
These essential works, taking place today, may result in temporary water discolouration for some customers in the afternoon and evening.
ACTEW Water apologises for any inconvenience this essential work may cause. We wish to assure our customers that these works will result in long-term improvements to their local water network.
We would ask affected customers to store and refridgerate some drinking water in sealable containers should they require it during this period. Householders are also advised to refrain from using washing machines and dishwashers, and showering/bathing during this time.
A bit more notice would have helped.
