What Colour is Electricity?...



On the pavements near where I live are hundreds of brightly coloured markings. Above is a snap I took of those right outside my place.

The pavement slabs are about to be replaced and so a guy from the council has been around with a weird metal detector/paint dauber marking the slabs in different colours identifying where all the under-pavement pipes lie so the layers don't drill into one of the pipes. What is interesting me was what colours means what?

Green
White
Red
Yellow
Blue

I'm guessing each colour represent one utility; gas, water, sewage, electricity? cable TV? telephone? Anyone know which colour actually represents? I think blue means water.

    Yellow is gas and green is telephone. Dunno about red and white though.
