Water running out across pavement

Reported via desktop in the Flooding of a road or pavement category anonymously at 19:45, Wed 13 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3061056.


I raised this issue a while back and you responded with the update that it was a wessex water leak.

Wessex have since tested the leak and confirmed that it is not drinking water, this is also indicated by the algae growth and intermittent nature of the flow.

Can you please update me with the council led solution to deal with this safety issue?

  • Hello, just to say the water is still running across the pavement, quite a lot of algae growing and leaves are getting caight in damp making it slippery. During recent cold snap the water in the road was frozen in the morning, very dangerous for bikes. Can you update on progress asap please? Do let me know if you come to site as any works here will affect acces and we'd like to be kept informed.
