PHOTOS: Roof comes down at historic water tower
THE process to fix the Bundaberg East Water Tower has begun after the roof was significantly damaged in Sunday's storm.
Yesterday morning the roof was removed to allow for a structural assessment by an engineer.
Some residents initially thought the damaged roof was a small boat that was blown atop the tower during the powerful storm.
But that theory was sunk when NewsMail photographer Mike Knott sent our drone up and discovered what people had seen was half the roof peeled back.
The eight-storey heritage-listed building is the only circular brick water tower in Queensland.
It was built between 1901 and 1902.
