A new water main break that occurred Thursday morning is continuing to impact the same buildings on Main Campus that were without water earlier in the week due to a previous water line issue related to the ongoing construction work on Bancroft Street.

The buildings impacted include University Hall, Gillham Hall, Stranahan Hall, Savage & Associates Business Complex, McMaster Hall, Ritter Planetarium, Driscoll Alumni Center, Health and Human Services Building, Snyder Memorial Building, Libbey Hall, Memorial Field House, Honors Academic Village, MacKinnon Hall, Scott Hall, and Tucker Hall (including the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women).

Water was restored to the buildings late Thursday afternoon, and the restroom facilities reopened. The drinking fountains will remain closed until at least Tuesday while the buildings remain under a drinking water boil advisory.

Bottled water is available at distribution sites in Libbey Hall outside the Admissions Office, University Hall outside Doermann Theatre, Stranahan Hall in the first-floor lobby, and Health and Human Services Building in the first-floor lobby.
