Mains serving around 8,700 properties have been flushed in New Romney, Lydd-on-Sea, Littlestone and Greatstone.
Operations Manager Tony Whitehouse says that local water sources contain naturally occurring iron and manganese which led to the build up of sediment.
He said: “We developed a two stage plan to minimise the build up of sediment in the future. First we undertook a £4m upgrade of Denge Water Treatment Works and installed new equipment which more effectively removes iron and manganese. We then followed this up with the flushing programme. Together these moves will substantially reduce the chances of discolouration occurring in future.”
While flushing the mains Affinity Water had a mobile information unit in the areas affected giving background on the programme. Water efficiency advice was also offered and free water saving devices were supplied to more than 400 homes.
Affinity Water has more than 1,000 kms of mains pipes in its network in the Folkestone and Dover area with a rolling programme of mains maintenance and replacement planned. More information on Affinity Water is available at www.affinitywater.co.uk/alerts/mains-cleaning
