Several buildings on Main Campus continue to be impacted by a water main break that occurred Monday evening 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).

City of Toledo crews will continue working Tuesday and Wednesday to complete repairs. Expect intermittent water shutdowns while the repairs are completed.

Restroom facilities in the buildings named will be closed while repairs are completed. Restrooms are available nearby in the Thompson Student Union, Carlson Library, and Bowman-Oddy Laboratories and Wolfe Hall.

The buildings will be under a drinking water boil advisory that will likely extend until Monday, and the drinking fountains will remain closed.

The University has set up drinking water distribution sites to provide bottled water for departments in the impacted buildings. Bottled water can be picked up at:

• Libbey Hall, outside the Admissions Office, for occupants of Libbey Hall, Honors Academic Village, MacKinnon Hall, Scott Hall and Tucker Hall.

• University Hall, outside Doermann Theatre, for occupants of University Hall, Gillham Hall and Memorial Field House.

• Stranahan Hall, first floor in the lobby, for occupants of Stranahan Hall, Savage & Associates Business Complex, McMaster Hall and Ritter Planetarium.

• Health and Human Services Building, first floor lobby, for occupants of Health and Human Services Building and Snyder Memorial Building.

The water main break was reported after 5:30 p.m. Monday on Bancroft Street near Brookdale Road. It occurred while city of Toledo crews were working to repair and replace water and sewer lines as part of the ongoing Bancroft road construction project.
