Two days to fix a water leak
9:00am Thursday 31st May 2012 in Abingdon
MILTON HEIGHTS: Thames Water has been criticised for taking about 48 hours to fix a water leak.
Karen Dodd, 52, of Mackenzie Avenue, Milton Heights, said water began leaking on Saturday night from a metal cover in the pavement outside her two-bedroom terrace house.
She said the leak was fixed about 6.30pm on Tuesday.
Thames Water spokesman Simon Evans said: “We try to fix every leak on the network as soon as we can and we prioritise them in order of severity.”
