Burst water main at South Wentworthville

Published: 18th May 2007

This afternoon firefighters from Merrylands and Wentworthville assisted residents in Frances Street at South Wentworthville when a burst water main flooded two houses. Fire crews used portable pumps, which are carried on fire engines, to remove water from the homes. The water authority shut the water off in the main and firefighters continued to pump the water from the houses. Fire crews assisted with the final clean up but the homes suffered substantial damage from the water.
