The water, in the first trough to the left on the track to the Community Gardens, appears to be contaminated, with a milky appearance, and some spilled fluid on the filler cover (0930, 24/05/23).
If anyone knows what this might be, and it’s harmless, then can they please comment to let everyone know?
Otherwise baling out the trough a couple of times is obviously needed.
Can everyone please avoid rinsing or washing anything in the troughs for obvious reasons. Take water into a bucket or other container for doing this.
Update: the leak has been repaired and the water seems clear as of this lunchtime 25 05 23.
We also have a likely explanation as to what the material in the water was and it would be quite harmless.
