UPDATE: Water supply restored as major Yeppoon leak fixed
UPDATE SATURDAY 9.20AM: NORMAL water supply has now been restored to areas south of Yeppoon.
Crews have been flushing mains to remove any discoloured water which may have been caused by the changes in flows.
The crew advised last night that the estimated time for returned supply was 10.30pm and worked through until water supply was returned.
Council thanked residents for their patience and gave a special thanks to their "amazing crews for their dedication”.
If you experience discoloured water please contact council on 4913 5000.
