Thames Water to be grilled by London Assembly
Thames Water will face the London Assembly's Environment Committee at City Hall tomorrow (February 4) to answer questions concerning last week's Farringdon flooding, the Tideway Tunnel project, and customer water bills. Other issues such as metering and water supply will also be on the agenda.
Richard Aylard, Thames Water's external affairs and sustainability director, will attend the meeting along with Sir Tony Redmond, chair, London and South East Region, Consumer Council for Water; Alex Nickson, policy and programmes manager, Greater London Authority; and Kevin Reid, principal programme manager, Greater London Authority.
The committee is seeking to establish:
- What Thames Water will do to prevent further incidents like the Farringdon flooding from happening again
- The extra cost to consumers to fund the £4bn Tideway Tunnel
- How the company will reduce sewer flooding in homes by the recommended 10%.
