Ground floods as burst pipe causes water to gush and gush

Ground floods as burst pipe causes water to gush and gush
September 01, 2009


A RESIDENT had complained that water supply was very low.

So the town council sent a plumber. But he was unable to fix it and caused another problem instead - water began gushing out of the pipe.

Residents said water began flowing from the second storey of Block 81, Commonwealth Close, to the pavement below on Wednesday morning.

Housewife Suzlynn Mohd, 34, who lives on the 15th storey, said: 'I saw so much water gushing out from the second-storey corridor all the way down to the grass patch and pavement under the block.'

Madam Suzlynn said the leak happened for about two hours, but a spokesman for the Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council said it lasted only about 40 minutes.

The water pressure was affected while contractors tried to fix the problem.

Madam Suzlynn said there were only drops coming out of her tap during that time.

'I didn't mind not having water at home but my main concern was that there was so much water gushing from the pipe. So much water was wasted.'

The town council's spokesman said a resident had complained that they had very low water pressure which was linked to a valve which regulates the flow of water outside the unit.

It then sent its stand-by plumber to take a look.

Said the spokesman: 'The plumber tried to remove the defective valve to replace it with a new one but failed as the water pressure was too high.

'The water gushed out for about 40 minutes before our plumbing contractors fixed the problem.'

The spokesman confirmed that the water pressure was affected when the repair works were in progress, but the town council did not receive any complaints of disrupted water supply from residents of the block.
