Dear Yorkshire Water... [Aug. 8th, 2006|07:07 am]
The Love Bug
Dear Yorkshire Water,

As a new customer of yours, receiving water and waste services to my newly acquired property, I would like to express my concern about the widening river that is currently making its way down from Thrybergh Country Park towards Hooton Roberts.

It would seem that one or more of your contracted operatives decided to leave a leak in your water main unchecked, and therefore is now generating a flow of (apparently) fresh water which is heading down the Doncaster Road, and then - quite literally - down the drain... only to reappear back up through the drain at the bottom of the hill because the drain cannot cope with the capacity!

Now usually I wouldn't concern myself with issues of this nature, only I have small concern that you'll a) announce that there is a water shortage in the region, b) be fined (á la Thames Water) for failing to maintain your pipe network, and thus c) end up transferring the cost of your (or your contractors) negligence onto me.

Now bloody sort it!!

This doesn't make up for it, but thought you'd like to know.

Yorkshire Water have a really good water system. They pipe water down from somewhere up north when they run short. This was after the water shortages in the 80s, they made plans to deal with it again.

Also, the reservoirs are still really full up there.

You're up North now, you have to take things at a slower pace and worry less.

There is plenty of water up North, you will notice in winter.
