U.K.’s Largest Water Company Reports No Issues Amid Record Rains

The U.K.’s largest water company says it’s having no water-quality issues after two months of record storms have flooded parts of Britain, making islands of homes in towns west of London along the Thames River.

“We have no reported drinking water quality issues in our region due to flooding,” Thames Water Utilities Ltd. said on its website. “The pipes which carry drinking water around the network are sealed, underground and under pressure. This pressure means that even if there was a leak, pressure forces the clean water out rather than letting other substances in.”

The U.K.’s biggest water and wastewater services provider with about 15 million customers across the capital London and the Thames Valley was acquired in 2006 by the Kemble Water Holdings Ltd. group of institutional investors.

Severn Trent Plc, the U.K.’s second-largest publicly traded water company, said it expects “no material financial impact” from the storms. Pennon Group Plc, whose South West Water unit operates in areas affected by the worst flooding in 60 years, said today it’s delivering an “effective operational performance” in spite of the exceptional weather.
