When watermains in distribution systems spring a leak, the result is usually a relatively minor inconvenience to businesses and residents who might see some excess water on roads and lawns and in the worst situations, a bit of basement flooding. When a major transmission line fails, the amount of water released can be catastrophic, due to the larger-diameter pipes used and the high water pressures involved, which can sometimes be triple the pressure found in a typical watermain and up to 100 times the volume of water.
