Change in colour, taste or smell to water 

Brown water 

If your water is a brown colour, it may be due to maintenance work on the main supply. To flush out any sediment try running the cold tap for several minutes.  

Milky white water 

If your water is a milky white colour, it is normally due to air trapped in the water supply after maintenance work. Leave a glass or jug of water to stand for a few minutes and the water should clear.
