The water company have moved to allay any concerns and stressed it will remain safe to drink.
Residents of Bury St Edmunds are being warned of potential disruption to their water supply during routine maintenance this month.
Anglian Water will be flushing the water mains in the town, which could cause some people’s tap water to turn “discoloured” and others to lose water for period’s of time. They have stressed it will remain safe to drink.
A spokesman from Anglian Water said: “This work is essential to make sure that we can maintain the quality of the drinking water supply.”
They warned that residents may see water being washed down the road, but stressed that the work was vital for the supply of high quality drinking water.

The work will be taking place in streets across the town from June 24 until July 14. To keep disruption to a minimum, Anglian Water will carry out the works from 9pm until 6am. The water company has told residents not to be alarmed if their water becomes discoloured or cloudy or they experience low water pressure when works are in the area. Their spokesman said: “We shouldn’t need to visit properties as part of this work, but for peace of mind, if we do need to call all our staff and representatives carry ID cards.”
