Siemens History of Complaints & Lawsuits, as Documented on the Web

July 16th, 2014 by

Following Thursday night’s City Council meeting, with some questions being answered, and many more not being answered; it seems that the internet was a popular plance for many local residents to go and search for Siemens’ (the company who is intalling our new water meters and will install an estimated 45-93 miles of underground water lines) history.  Many of those who did so, forwareded their information to MLive.

Wikipedia describes Siemens in several aspects, including their contoversial history, as shown here.

Listed below are some of the other credible, documented allegation about Siemens.
Siemens in McComb, MS – Federal Court to hear Meter Lawsuit
Siemens in Jackson, MS – “Water Meters Still Worry Council Members”
Siemens Facing Pending Lawsuits in Chicago for Water System Failure
Siemens Facing Lawsuit in Sacramento
Siemens Paid $1.34 Billion in Fines – New York Times

Although these only cover a few of the wide range of products and services that Siemens offer, there is certainly enough “smoke” to be looking for “fires” to erupt.

  1. Bishop Sam Wherry says:

    The underlying factor with Seimans etc. in this ongoing saga with Water and Sewer is the mere fact. The Architect/Engineers did a comprehensive enhance ability and feasibility study of the City’s Water and Sewage issues and presented take off list of the repairs and enhancements required to bring city into compliance. The City Council after review voted to contract after due bids Siemans to do the designated repairs for contracted agreed amount. There is no issue til this entity completes it’s contracted obligation in the near future then ADEQ etc. can do testing to determine the validity thereof and if Siemans has not complied as per contract then Sieman by jurist prudence will have to bring into compliance the agreement. The total issue of the city was not taken care of during the West Administration when discovery found the entire city infrastructure was non-compliance and in Eunice with the US 425 Commercial and Highway infrastructure bring into compliance in order to construct North park Village Shopping Center and other Commercial Real Estate entities there Federal/State entities assisted in funding but the Administration did not act to bring the city into compliance which at that time 10 million dollars with matching funds would have brought the entire city infrastructure into compliance. The Maxwell Administration acted quickly to seek and secure funding to secure the city’s sewage treatment facilities and devastating infrastructure is within Wards One and three. The issue now will be resolved at close of Siemens Construction, remember they are only the contractor. The engineer team is the liable/responsible party of designation and yes Seiman is answerable not only to Monticello but the engineer it they do not or shortcut the specifics of the agreement.

    Two things need to be pointed out within this story, regardless of one’s belief or even the truthfulness of these “facts.” It is a travesty that any supposed journalism entity would not only publish, but cite Wikipedia as a source for anything and call it news given the open source nature of the site. Secondly, if the writer wants to your this piece as an opinion, then it should be labelled as such, but to suggest that there is “certainly enough ‘smoke’ to be looking for ‘fires’ to erupt” is far from “reporting” news and is conjecture at best. Thanks!

    Oh my my what a mess. I pray my water stays the same.
    THANK GOD there is no rust are sand in it.

  4. LaNell McKiever says:

    Who is the engineers and the West Administration has been long gone. I believe Obama is in his second term and still blaming Bush for everything. Current council and Mayors should be accountable. This council has been around long time. We have been too busy spending the water fund for everything else but what it was intended for.

    Just a big mess all we can do is pray.If you don’t like ML don’t read it!
