A resident of High Street has highlighted a problem with the efforts of Thames Water.
The water company started works in High Street on Monday 8th November. They dug a hole and left, presumably due to a reported leak.
There is a sign on the baracade saying that work will be completed by the 10th. Today is Friday 12th.
As you can see from the photos, it hasn't been fixed!
Clean water has been flowing from the hole (which must be at least 3 to 4 ft deep) into a drain, since Monday.
Our correspondent comments: "I'm no engineer but not sure how long this could go on for before the pavement and Wychert wall could be compromised. Perhaps it is better that the water escapes?
I've managed to contact Thames Water on Wednesday to register my concerns and I've notified the parish council. And what a waste of water!"
She continues: "I appreciate and understand how utility services are super stretched with work ect. I also understand from Thames Water that household water needs to be turned off whilst the works are carried out.
But I haven't heard anything from them and don't know who has been or will be affected — perhaps this is the fine balance and hence the delay for fixing it?"
