A new water feature for Tewkesbury

9th August 2016

People in Tewkesbury or travelling along the A38 may have noticed a new water feature in the area.

As you can see, this morning a water pipe at our water treatment works in Tewkesbury sprung a little leak.

It looks incredibly dramatic, but in fact it's not causing any issues at all.  It's just a tiny crack, but as such a lot of water is passing through the pipe, at high pressure, the small amount of water escaping is being hurled up to 50 feet in the air.

We'd like to reassure local people that it's not having any impact on customer water supplies at all, and we don't expect it to either.

Our teams are working to isolate and fix the leak now, which unfortunately means that the new fountain will sadly be over soon.
