Failing Water Pipes Cause Havoc

Email subscribers may have to visit Nanaimo Info Blog to view video.

This is the kind of damage a broken water main can cause in a matter of about one hour. They say the break was due to old cast iron pipe failing. Do we know how much of this we 'really' have sitting underground in Nanaimo? How accurate are the estimates of the life expectancy of some of our water and sewer pipes?

Clearly it is cheaper and far less traumatic to deal with this stuff before it blows up.
