    The scenery was beautiful just watching the water run like a river down stream, filling a swimming pool, flowing  straight to the sea while creating a new beach path  As a lover of nature I could not resist taken photos of this iwonderful lanndscape.  Water was flowing for a long time that the road side had created a cave effect, while the tar stayed on the surface and was not noticiable to motorist and I assisted the owners with a safe traffic flow.  A Police car passed but never stopped to enquire of the situation –

    Why is the Bodden Town water main always breaking? Is it old? Was it installed incorrectly? Sabotage?

      Keep digging up the same rocks that caused the pipe to burst and throw em back in the trench to eventually burst the pipe again. Keeps the WAC in work, its how its done, its WAC!
