Thorpe Pumping Station - Blocked Pump

Thorpe Pumping Station - Blocked Pump

Councillor Waters has recieved an update from The Huntingdon Maintenance Team regarding The Thorpe pumping station. Anglian Water are currently making every effort at the Thorpe pumping station in order to clear enough surface water from the 'wet well' to get at the blocked suction pipe that has forced one of the pumps to stop working. At the moment, they are unable to overcome the additional flow with tankers and so cannot yet predict when that will be and may be further delayed by more heavy rain forecast this week. However they do say that the throughput from both pumps will be improved when the work is complete.

In the meantime, please be aware of standing water that may gather after heavy rain on the bend at the junction of The Thorpe and Manor Road and Anglian Water vehicles operating in a tight and busy area.
