For years NWW and UU have put all there eggs in the two aqueducts the Manchester corporation lay to supply Manchester
since then NWW have tapped in on the way down from the Lakes  (Abbaystead pump house and Sweetloves etc) now the first aqueduct needs repairs  They have closed reservoirs and sold the land, the only new one is Dove Stones which was made to improve the quality of Tame because of all the sewage works that flow in to it But then  Buckton Castle treatment Plant was built to supply drinking water from Dove stones and Carr brook was closed . I am only talking about Tameside

Son of Nomad I think you are forgetting the national debt we had a 50 years paying back back for the 1939-1946 war which is now done but we are still in debt
