Thames Water have worked through the night to fix the burst pipe at Hampton treatment works.

- Inchcape Volkswagen, 40 South Road, TW2 5NT.
Schools have been advised to reopen as usual today but Thames Water recommends checking with individual schools beforehand.
If customers in high rise flats are experiencing delays in having their water restored they should contact the managing agents of their building to check the internal pumping and pumps.
Once your water supply returns, please remember to run your cold kitchen tap for a few minutes.

Guaranteed Standards Scheme (GSS)
Although loss of supply or loss of water pressure is the responsibility of your Water Network Owner, Castle Water is responsible for administering payments, where they are due, under Ofwat’s Guaranteed Standards Scheme (GSS) for customers in England. A summary of the standards and conditions is available at castlewater.co.uk/GSS.
Castle Water will work with your Water Network Owner to administer GSS payments in certain situations if your supply has been interrupted or if your water pressure falls below the minimum pressure standard on two occasions or more, with each occasion lasting more than one hour. This includes identifying customers who are entitled to GSS payments and ensures we have accurate details of the supply losses suffered.
Customers in England seeking GSS payments can contact Castle Water directly to provide information and ensure that you receive the correct payment where due. Simply submit your details online at castlewater.co.uk/supplyclaim.
In times of extreme weather conditions, we will publish updates from your Water Network Owner (i.e. Scottish Water, Thames Water or Portsmouth Water) here. For full details on these updates, please see your Water Network Owner’s website.
