Water leak

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Jeremy Renals at 13:34, Thu 14 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1846338.

Around a month ago I reported a water leak coming up through the tarmac outside my house to Anglian Water. They say a leaking pipe on the junction with Richmond Street is causing water to run 100 metres under the tarmac, and break through near me. 1) I have to step over a stream every time I go somewhere. 2) what is this ongoing erosion beneath the tarmac doing to the state of your road? Have a word with them?

  • Hi, there has been a permanent wet patch in the road outside my house for a month now. With the freezing temperatures there is going to be an ice rink out there every frosty morning, with passing vehicles risking sliding into our house or the cars in the lay-by opposite. Fair warning.
