A BURST water main turned See St in Bargara into a river at 3am this morning.

NewsMail delivery driver Carl Wurzbacher came across the incident on his routine delivery run and said the street was overflowing.

"The water was bubbling out of the gutter on the edge of the road and was running down the driveway into establishments at the bottom of the car park," he said.

" It was like a river. The water was overflowing and filling the top of the car park at the Windmill and Nanna's Pantry."

Mr Wurzbacher said he contacted Bundaberg police who advised they would get on to the Bundaberg Regional Council.

Council workers are currently on scene fixing the damage.

Windmill barista Matt Grills said the water had not reached their cafe but the driveway was currently blocked.

"Council are doing a great job and said they are hoping to have the area cleared very soon," he said.
