Water gushes down Rocky Street

A CONCERNED resident was shocked to find water gushing down Prospect Street for more than an hour yesterday.

A Rockhampton Regional Spokeswoman said the water running from a main as it was being flushed after some maintenance work.

She said this is a regular practice to ensure flow is clean and that pipes are working at their full capacity.

The resident contacted The Bully after noticing water rushing from the main just before 3pm.

The flow of water stretched more than 100m down the street.
