Drinkable, hot water returns to Park-Stradley

Conditions are improving for Park-Stradley Hall residents.

Dave Isaacs, a Student Life spokesman, said in an email Friday afternoon hot water and drinkable water had returned to the building, home to 1,200 students.

The students who  were evacuated after a Sunday water main break got to return to their rooms Wednesday after three nights, but were without some basic amenities like access to hot water, drinking water, heating or air conditioning in their rooms.

Residents were advised to take showers at the RPAC while the water issue was being fixed.

Isaacs said the cause of the water main break is still unknown, and an investigation will take some time.

“I do not anticipate a quick answer to that question,” Isaacs said in an email.

About 2,000 total students were evacuated Sunday due to the water main break, including residents in Baker Hall East and West, who were permitted to return to their rooms Monday at 7 a.m.

The Ohio Union was also evacuated Sunday night but reopened Monday at 7 a.m.

Park-Stradley opened Fall Semester after being closed for a year as part of a $171 million South Campus renovation project. The building was occupied for about a month before the water main break.
