If you are a Port Moresby resident, you may have noticed the taps running dry suddenly last weekend. I’m sure frustrated residents had something to say about Eda Ranu and its services. However, it was not a planned event like many would assume.

According to Eda Ranu’s Facebook page, a main trunk at 17 mile burst resulting in low pressure or no pressure in some areas.
