#AceNewsDesk – Residents in Moama in southern New South Wales are complaining about brown water coming out of their household taps as the local government authority says it’s an issue that is likely to go on for weeks

Moama resident Beck Angel took to social media to show the discoloration of the water coming out of her taps.

“Here’s our kitchen tap water — bath and shower way worse!” she said.

“We haven’t been drinking it either, but when the water looks like this in the bathroom, [we] don’t really want to wash in it either.”

The Murray River Council said floodwater from the river systems was affecting the council’s filtered water networks and discolouring the usually clear tap water.It was a case of ‘don’t throw in the baby with the bath water’.(Supplied: Facebook/Sar Hall)none

“While the filtered water is discoloured, it is not harmful and the filtered water quality is within the requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines,” a council spokesperson said.

It said the discolouration may cause toilet U-bends to look a little murky, bath water may look dirty, and that white sheets and clothes may not stay white when washed.

“This is likely to be an ongoing issue for weeks to come,” the spokesperson said.

No boil water alert active for the area

Last month, the Echuca-Moama region was inundated by floodwater, and residents continue the recovery and clean-up process.Moama resident Beck Hall is just one resident to complain about the state of the town’s water.(Facebook / Beck Hall)none

The Murray Darling Basin Authority data shows the Murray River at Echuca is at 93.78 metres above sea level after peaking at a height of 94.977m on October 27.

Resident Rupert Aldous posted that his water was fine but that he still wouldn’t drink it.

“I’m in Lawson Drive and if you can’t see it, I just half-filled my bathroom basin with water,” he said.

Resident Belinda Lee also said her tap water was fine.

“Even white washing is fine. l don’t drink it before it’s boiled, but it’s not discoloured,” she posted.

But another resident, Denise Slater, took to social media on Sunday to show her load of white clothes stained brown after they had been through a laundry cycle that morning.Moama resident Denise Slater ran her whites through the washing machine on Sunday morning only to have them come out brown.(Facebook / Denise Slater)none

Murray River Council last put out a Boil Water Alert for Moama on October 22 due to flood conditions when drinking water in Moama’s filtered water network became unsafe.

Moama’s filtered water comes from the Murray River, and Moulamein from the Edwards River which is filtered at a water filtration plant.
