The article reports that Three Valleys Water was told to pay out nearly £20,000 after pleading guilty to supplying water unfit for human consumption. The company made new connections to three properties in February 2006. When two of these were occupied, occupants complained about their water, which was found to be bacteriologically unsatisfactory and discoloured. An inspection found that the properties had been connected to a mains pipe for untreated water.
