INVESTIGATIONS have been carried out into the source of a mysterious water leak in West Caister
Engineers from Anglian Water traced the problem to a private or surface water sewer in West Road.
Last week's Mercury reported that retired farmer Fred Rose had been campaigning for action to be taken to deal with the problem.
A stream of effluent had been pouring down the road which runs from the village to the Caister bypass.
Mr Rose was concerned the discharge was damaging the road surface and creating a traffic hazard.
He said: “Anglian Water sent along two guys to investigate the problem and they said it was sewerage. I hope the problem can be repaired as soon as possible.”
