Local shoppers, retailers water engineers are puzzled by the appearance of “wet patch” which never dries up – in the middle of Penarth’s Windsor Road.
The wetness – in the road outside Boots the Chemist – seems to seep up from some underground source – leading some to speculate that the town may have acquired a new and hitherto undiscovered source of natural springwater.
…On the other hand the more prosaic explanation may be that an underground water main has burst .
Water engineers were on the scene on Tuesday evening using the relatively quiet night-time period to listen for underground leaks – but so far have yet to pinpoint the source of the mysterious up-welling water.
It’s thought more than likely that the relatively recently-resurfaced part of Windsor Road may need to be dug up to locate the problem.
