Water main bursts in Braddon with water supply cut to homes

Some Braddon residents have lost water supply to their homes after a water main burst on Tuesday morning.

Braddon residents are being advised to avoid the corner of Elouera and Lonsdale Streets as Icon Water crews work to repair the broken main.

The main is believed to have burst shortly before midday.

People living in the area may experience some water discolouration as the supply is redirected.

An Icon Water spokesperson said while it's impossible to predict to what degree the water will be impacted, the pipes are currently being flushed to minimise discolouration.

Affected residents should contact Icon Water Customer Service on 6248 3111 if they have any concerns.
