A MAJOR pipe break at the Kalkie Water Treatment Plant yesterday affected thousands of locals across a wide area of coastal communities from Kalkie to Riverview.

Bundaberg Regional Council Water and Wastewater portfolio spokesman Alan Bush said at the time of the incident that it could take between 10 to 12 hours to complete and advised essential water use only.

"During this period council requests that use of reticulated water be confined to essential use only," Cr. Bush said.

Cr Bush said affected areas included Kalkie, Burnett Heads, The Port, The Hummock, Bargara, Innes Park, Coral Cove, Elliott Heads and Riverview.

Cr Bush said that as repairs were being carried out residents could experience complete loss of supply, discoloured water or extremely low water pressure.

He said council apologised to affected customers for the loss of service and inconvenience caused.
