Water is expected to be restored this morning to some buildings impacted by a main break yesterday near the Glass Bowl on UT’s Main Campus.

Savage Arena, Nitschke Hall, Palmer Hall and the North Engineering Building should have water flowing again Wednesday morning, according to Jason Toth, associate vice president of facilities.

The College of Engineering Spring Career Expo — which is for UT engineering students and alumni only — will continue as scheduled today.

And the women’s and men’s basketball games will be played in Savage Arena at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., respectively.

The buildings will be under a boil water advisory for 72 hours.

Water will continue to be shut off in the Larimer Athletic Complex and Health Education Building as repairs continue, Toth said.

The water main break at the foot of the hill by the Glass Bowl occurred Tuesday morning requiring water to be shut off to several buildings.

Food service in the Student Union also is suspended as officials prepare to test the water. Once inspected by the city, food service will resume.

The water main break also caused a drop in water pressure to the Savage Steam Plant requiring reduced heat to most buildings during repairs. The boilers are returning to full power as repairs continue.
