University addresses ISR flood

By Andrea Cheng

An aged hot water pipe burst in a closet of Wardall hall, one of the two buildings that make up the Illinois Street Residence hall. Rooms on the seventh floor down to the basement effectively flooded as a result of the break that occurred over spring break.

According to an e-mail sent to the residents of the hall, staff entered all rooms that were affected, removing paper products and washable items to prevent further damage to personal property.

At a flood meeting held last night, Andi Cailles, assistant director of residential life, said each resident should provide an estimated cost for any damaged item, whether it had been a box of tissues or a laptop.
