Thames Water secures site in anglers’ haven

folder_openHigh Security, Utilities

An operational Thames Water site that sits among East London’s anglers has had its security upgraded with no downtime.

The two compounds at Walthamstow Reservoir have been fitted with security fencing from Thames Water perimeter protection partner Zaun.

Zaun has supplied its most intruder-resistant product around the main compound. ArmaWeave’s unique properties add substantial resistance to cutting attacks with hand, powered and non-contact tools. In addition, the tight mesh pattern provides no climbing aids, again limiting the potential for intrusion.

While Zaun Group installer Binns Fencing had to hand dig around a mass of cables and conduits and invent a novel way of cladding the back of the palisade fencing on the smaller compound with its HiSec mesh.

The surrounding Walthamstow Reservoir is internationally recognised for the diverse range of birds it attracts and consists of 10 individual reservoirs, some of the Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The nature haven in the heart of the capital also offers the budding angler the chance to fish specimen carp, bream, chub and both rainbow and brown trout.
