Pump the music, nick the pump

Trade Publication
The author reflects on several issues related to the utilities sector. He mentions the theft of a one-ton sewage pump and several manhole covers from a Severn Trent site. He characterizes the police response to a 2008 Climate Camp action targeting Kingsnorth power station as amateurish because of the use of music to deprive the protesters of sleep. He points out that information about public water towers is quite difficult to find in the public domain because they were originally part of the public water supply.
