坎寧鎮的洪水。泰晤士河水務公司被指責為 "不負責任的企業"。

泰晤士河水務公司此前曾表示,開發小區的第一次水災事件是由第三方將混凝土倒入下水管道造成的。

當時,物業管理公司沒有給他們一個時間表,說明他們的食宿費用何時能得到補償。

此後,在周一的紐漢姆議會會議上,議員們被告知,泰晤士水務公司的挖掘機在對Hallsville Quarter的一個新連接點進行不同工程時損壞了一條水管--這已經是第二次造成水災了。

據地方民主報告服務部報道,坎寧鎮南部的工黨議員Alan Griffiths說,這次水災 "影響了一段時間的供水,導致Rathbone街完全被淹"。

他問道。"議會能否確認泰晤士水務公司是否已經告訴我們這是什麼原因,以及我們如何確保我們的居民繼續相信,作為一個議會,我們會代表他們做一切事情?"

紐漢姆的工黨市長Rokshana Fiaz回答說,泰晤士水務公司已經通知議會,"當挖掘機進行這個連接時,他們在安裝連接之前損壞了水管"。

她補充說:"我確實想說這一點。泰晤士水務公司在管道漏水方面是臭名昭著的,而且在其混亂的維護計劃方面也是臭名昭著的,這導致了在這個時代水的流失量大大增加。

她的評論是在涉及該公司的多個爭議之後提出的,該公司目前在英國所有九家水務公司中的漏水記錄最差。

泰晤士河水務公司也是監管機構Ofwat正在調查的五家公司之一,因為他們對廢水處理的管理方式存在 "嚴重關切"。


Thames Water has previously said that the first flooding incident at the development complex was caused by a third party pouring concrete into a sewer line.

At the time, they were not given a timeline by the property's management company as to when they could be reimbursed for the cost of their accommodation and food.

Since then, at a Newham Council meeting on Monday, councillors have been told that Thames Water excavators damaged a water main while carrying out different works on a new connection in Hallsville Quarter - which caused flooding for a second time.

Alan Griffiths, Labour councillor for Canning Town South, said the flooding "impacted the water supply for a while, leading to Rathbone Street being completely flooded", as reported by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

He asked: "Can the council confirm if Thames Water has told us what the cause of this is, and how do we make sure our residents continue to have faith that as a council we do everything in our power on their behalf?"

Newham's Labour mayor Rokshana Fiaz replied that Thames Water had informed the council "that while excavators carried out this connection, they damaged the water main prior to installing the connection".

She added: "I do want to say this: Thames Water is notorious in terms of its leaky pipes, and notorious in relation to its bungled-up maintenance programme that has led to a significant increase in water being lost in this day and age.

Her comments come after multiple controversies involving the firm, which currently has the worst record on leaks out of all nine water companies in the UK.

Thames Water is also among five companies being investigated by regulator Ofwat over "serious concerns" about how wastewater treatment is managed.
