Clean up after series of burst water mains

Published: 08 March 2016


Adelaide’s north-east begins a massive clean-up after a series of water-mains burst yesterday afternoon.

The enormous clean up task has begun for residents swamped by burst water mains in the North Eastern suburbs, as they assess what they've lost.

At least three water mains burst about 3pm on Monday, turning roads into rivers.

Cars were submerged and seven houses were flooded.

Frustrated residents have told Ten Eyewitness News the response from SA Water was “anything but rapid”.
