Emergency repairs on burst water main
10:30am Thursday 19th September 2013 in NW
A WATER main burst on Coupland Road in Hindley Green last week – despite a leak being reported several months ago.
A resident claimed he had noticed the leak and reported it at least twice before the water main burst on September 10.
The pipe is now being fixed by United Utilities after gushing water for several days.
A spokesman for United Utilities said: “We are always grateful to customers for reporting leaks and we aim to repair them as quickly as we can.
“In this instance we were planning the repairs around the needs of a nearby manufacturing business who need water 24 hours a day.
“Unfortunately the leak got worse and we were forced to fix the pipe as an emergency last week.”
