Water spillage can happen in a number of ways. The most common reason is when someone leaves the tap running, or when a pipe bursts. In other cases, water can leak from the roof or be caused by heavy rainfall.
In some cases, water can come from an underground pipe that has been damaged by construction work. This is called “backflow” and it happens when a pipe carrying clean water becomes contaminated with dirty water.
