Are you affected by the stink and slime from the water weed in The New River?
Do you have to keep your windows closed in the hot weather because of the smell?
Have you stopped walking along the river because it looks and smells bad?
It is a health hazard.
This is the Thames Water number to ring to request an urgent cleanup.
(This is free: beware, other Water Board numbers cost you £6 to ring).
Press button 1 for reporting water leaks (There is no designated extension that covers the The New River.)
Be patient with the time it takes to talk to a (very nice) real person and to get the request logged. She’ll request someone from the Ground Maintenance team to call you within 24 hrs.
I did this today and am expecting a call.
The more people log their complaints, the better.
