Water cut off after main break

TWO streets in Chinchilla have lost water after a major main break today.

Western Downs Regional Council posted the update on their Facebook page this afternoon.

"Chinchilla residents please take note that due to a major main break water will be off in Colamba and Condamine Streets until approximately 9pm. We thank you for your patience while our crew work towards resolving the break.”

Councillor Peter Saxelby said the damage occurred when construction workers involved in the Colamba Street upgrade hit the main with a piece of machinery.

He said council construction and utilities workers were both working to fix the problem as soon as possible.

"They'll have to put a new water main in,” Cr Saxelby said.
