Albury Council is continuing to test discoloured water affecting some homes and businesses.
The water is safe to drink, and is discoloured due to conditions in Lake Hume.
The water is sourced from a deep point and low oxygen can cause an increase in manganese and iron levels, resulting in discolouration.
Elevated manganese and iron are unlikely to pose a risk to health but can cause a poor taste.
Council says it is working closely with authorities to address the problem, which first arose on Friday.
IN OTHER NEWS:
The issue is affecting customers in AlburyCity and Greater Hume Shire Council's 'Villages Water Supply Scheme', and the situation could continue until the weather cools.
Although there is no reason to think the water is unsafe to drink, customers may wish to avoid washing white fabrics to reduce the risk of staining until the problem eases.
Council is continuing to work closely with NSW Health and Water NSW to address the problem and the community will be advised of any changes in the situation.
