Dee Valley Water protecting public water supply from illegal usage

  • PDF

Dee Valley Water have successfully prosecuted two businesses in the Chester area for illegally accessing water from hydrants connected to its water supply network. The two companies prosecuted were Clean Line Waste Water Solutions Limited of Birkenhead and TDM Drainage Ltd (trading as Metro Rod) based in Deeside. Following a successful court case, both were charged with offences that breached Section 174 of the Water Industry Act 1991 and received quite significant financial penalties of a fine with full costs awarded plus an additional victim surcharge.

Following a number of complaints made about water quality within the Chester area, the Company paid particular attention to the problematic areas which eventually led to its staff finding tankers owned by the two aforementioned companies filling up from a hydrant and who were subsequently prosecuted.
