What is a water main?
A water main is an underground pipe that delivers water to the customer's service pipe. In residential areas it usually runs under the street. If a hole or crack develops in the pipe, the water will typically find its way to the surface. When the water main is under pressure, water will continue to flow until the break is repaired.
A leaking water meter should also be reported to Council as soon as possible.
