Leaking pipes or taps in the home can cause significant amounts of water to be wasted, which can cost residents significant amounts of money on their water bills.
(PRWEB UK) 13 August 2013
According to the BBC in the article titled ‘Unrepaired Arnold Water Leak Growing Algae’ published on August 7, a water leak in a street in Nottinghamshire has gone unrepaired, causing algae to grow in the water.
The leak was caused by a burst pipe at the time the county experienced floods. Since the pipe burst, it is estimated that gallons of water have been leaking from the pipe and through the pavement.
Severn Trent Water, who supplies water to the area, has apologised to residents and a spokesperson told the BBC that:
“We’ll be carrying out work to repair it and we’re also installing new water pipes to help prevent further bursts in the area.”

“Whilst this recent news regards burst water pipes in a public area, it goes some way to highlight the necessity of fixing burst or leaking pipes in the home. Leaking pipes or taps in the home can cause significant amounts of water to be wasted, which can cost residents significant amounts of money on their water bills.
