Burst pipe to blame for lack of show­ers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

SOUTH Moss­man res­i­dents were left with­out their morn­ing shower last Fri­day when a water main in Con­nolly St burst.

Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil work­ers had to shut off the water sup­ply around 7.15am to fix the water main, which had a crack in it around 50cm long and turned water back on an hour later.

The water pipe has been patched with a band and flagged for re­place­ment and Cairns Re­gional coun­cil have told the Gazette the en­tire net­work will even­tu­ally be re­placed but they are not sure when.
