St Peter and St Paul's

St Peter and St Paul Catholic Primary Academy

Monday 29th January 2024

We had a representative from Thames Water visit the site on Friday, providing us with helpful information and reassurance.
On Wednesday, an initial problem occurred on Orpington High Street, which required an inspection of the main water pipe. As a result, the water supply was temporarily stopped, affecting the networks of Orpington, Petts Wood, Chislehurst, and Bromley. A leak was discovered which caused a reduction in water service. Unfortunately, this continued low pressure led to a shutdown of the local pumping station that supplies water to the Academy on Thursday morning approx 10.15 am. This was an unexpected fault in the Thames water pipe network. 
On Friday, the repairs on the main water pipeline in the high street began. Excavations were carried out over the weekend, and the actual repair work will start on Monday. This might result in a reduced water flow. However, if the Academy's water supply is affected, a Water Tanker will be stationed outside the Academy on Monday to ensure full water service.
