Re: Water on QVD?

The yokermains burn used to regularly flood the back gardens on Wykeham Road. Circa 1950 .Could the water on Victoria Drive be draining from Scotstounhill station? Also a large water main goes up Victoria Drive and over the railway bridge on the east side. Possibly a leak in this very large main.
