12/23/2017 – Severe Water Leak in EB Lower Level Atrium Area – now contained

There was a water leak from the restaurant space on the ground floor of EB. Most of the water hit the lower level Atrium area. There was some seepage into nearby classrooms (92 was minor but 93 and 95 had some severe water damage to ceiling tiles).

We reported the problem at about 9:30am.  Facilities got here at about 10am and briefly shut off water to EB. (It has since been restored.) The cleanup crews are expected soon.

We didn’t see any leaks into the EPL. The Data Center seems unaffected. The hallway between the Atrium and suite 90 had some water.
If you had any running experiments involving water in EB (or gear that expects continuous water pressure), you may want to check on status because there may have been an interruption when they were trying to stop the problem.
