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.
