Water Update @ Mayfield


Dear Families,

Due to another burst water main on Corfield St and one in Stanley Street, the school had very little water pressure, which resulted in toilets not flushing properly and water running slow from the taps. The water from our drinking bubblers was a little murky due to soot from the pipes. We advised the students not to drink any water from the bubblers until we said that it was safe to do so. Admin managed the situation by purchasing bottled water for every student and staff member. We also had plumbers out here to repair some of our toilets that stopped working due to the dirt in the pipes.

Urban Utilities was brilliant in responding to our phone calls and getting a crew out to access the problem. They even supplied a few boxes of bottled water to the school to assist with water supply.

We understand that Urban Utilities are doing everything that they can to repair the pipes.
