Dirty Water

By Deb@gungahlin - 31 December 2007 11

Hi, I’ve just discovered that the water coming out of my tap is pale brown. Is anyone else having this problem?

What’s Your opinion?

water generally gets a bit dirty when it’s been raining alot. This is sometimes because the supply gets silted up, or pipes in muddy ground allowing dirt to seep through through.

Another cause is when you leave the house for a couple of days or weeks, and it allows the gunk on the inside of the pipes to dislodge and find its way into the water once you run it.

Big buildings have this problem, and after weekends, offices on the higher floors sometimes get icky water that has been festering in the pipes all weekend.

Just before the Thredbo landslide, someone in a neighbouring lodge ran the tap and got muddy water coming out…

Yes in Dickson, but not till late morning. It was fine earlier, and it’s ok now.

That’s because you’ve been flushing bad brews down the sink?

The water has been brown in Holt for the last month or so.

Water tastes horrible in Lyneham at the moment. Was reasonable last night.

Ring ACTEW – they can tell you if they have been working on water pipes nearby, and will come and flush out the pipe near you.
