South East Water Essential Maintenance
Published: 26 June 2019
South East Water are carrying out essential maintenance on the water network in Teston to keep tap water running crystal clear. The process is called flushing and involves directing water through the pipes quickly to draw naturally occurring deposits, such as iron or manganese, out of the network. These aren't harmful but you may see temporarily discoloured water. This can be solved by running the cold kitchen tap until the water runs clear, you might also notice a temporary reduction in water pressure.
To minimise any disruption flushing is avoided between 6am and 8am and from 5pm to 10pm, when demand is highest.
SE Water only use the amount of water needed to clean the pipes and flushing stops as soon as the whole system is running clear.
Work begins on Monday 8 July and will last for approximately one week.
