No water at the water tower

Day two of frustration on the water front. Yorkshire Water just didn't turn up yesterday to connect us to the water main, diligently laid bare for them by Whitelocks. If the system spent less time on risk assessments and method statements and more on doing the doing we might one day get a water supply. Here we see smoke rising from a manhole like something from a pavement scene in New York
The smoke was Whitelock's man cutting in to the sewer - which belongs to United Utilities, not Yorkshire Water. Did somebody with a sense of humour come up with the name United Utilities?

Bobby inspects the unconnected water main and is not pleased. The No Water sign was a lucky find inside the water tower which somehow fits the situation.

From inside the roadworks Bobby keeps watch for Yorkshire Water's arrival.
