Customers in Joondanna, Mount Hawthorn, North Perth and Mount Lawley may be experiencing discoloured water following essential valve and pipeline works that has stirred up harmless sediment in the pipes.

The work required directional changes to the water flow in the network causing the sediment to become suspended in the water.

The sediment makes the water look discoloured but is harmless and the water is safe to use.

The temporary discolouration is currently expected to improve by Saturday (12 March) evening, although may be noticeable for longer when the water flow reverts to normal after the valve replacement.

Customers requiring help or assistance can visit our discoloured water advice page or call Water Corporation’s 24/7 Operations Centre on 13 13 75.

Water Corporation would like to apologise for any inconvenience, and thanks the community for their understanding while it completes these essential works.
