Dee Valley Water have successfully prosecuted two businesses in the Chester area for illegally accessing water from hydrants connected to its water supply network.

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.
