I came out of my house yesterday at 5am to go to work and saw water cascading from the pavement next to the stores on the corner of Kilpeck Road. The day before, Welsh Water had alerted us earlier that evening, through an automated telephone call, that we would be experiencing discoloured water. 35 hours later the water is still running. Anyone know what is going on as there is no statement on the WA website? The loss of water must be fantastic and wasteful.

I have been told the leak has been running since Sunday 5pm - 48 hours ago. Welsh Water asked for the shop wall to be taken down to get to leak which the shop did immediately, but no one has shown up today to fix the leak, so it just keeps running down the drain.

Unbelievable I wonder if their meter will tell them how much they have wasted?

Yes it’s gushing a fair bit! I’d take a wild guess and say at least a cubic meter an hour! No one has been today.

Before you start to judge me...Step into my shoes and walk the life I'm living and if you get as far as I am...just maybe you will see how strong I really am.
