Scottish Water defends use of witchcraft to find pipes and leaks

SCOTTISH water has defended its use of witchcraft to detect pipes underground.

The public-owned utilities company has admitted that some of its water operatives use rods and divination to establish the “presence of water and pipes”.

Known as water witching in the United States, but more commonly referred to as dowsing here, it’s the practice of holding twigs or metal rods that are supposed to move in response to hidden water.

Though an ancient method, it’s not backed up by science.
