Customers in the Weston Creek and Woden areas are advised to expect potential discolouration to their drinking water supplies following a burst to the inlet main serving a number of reservoirs in the area.
A number of suburbs including Fisher, Waramanga, Chapman, Stirling, Lyons, Torrens, Mawson, Farrer, Phillips, Garran and Hughes are likely to be affected. High-lying areas of these suburbs may also experience reduced water pressure.
ACTEW engineers have been on site since early this morning to undertake complicated repairs to this large water pipe. Repairs have been made more difficult by the presence of other utility infrastructure in the area.
Please find attached an ACTEW Water Media Release with further information.
