                  It is time for Thames Water to investigate the cause of pollution and stop it from its roots... and if individuals cause the pollution they should take strict action against them as this poses a risk to the lives of the people

                        The reported discovery of E. coli in the water definitely raises concerns about the effectiveness of Thames Water's monitoring and management practices. Such oversight could lead to serious health risks and shows the need for stricter oversight and proactive measures to safeguard public health and the environment. We cannot risk our people's lives while responsible organisations just sit back

                          @munene_mugambi I agree with you...The authorities responsible for clean waterways such as Thames Waters should come up with structures and policies to prevent such pollution as it puts people's lives and health at risk
