A water main broke at Parker Hall on Monday, leaving water damage in six offices and shutting off water services in nearby buildings, according to university officials.
The breakage affected Parker, Noyes and McAlester halls, McAlester Annex and the Old Student Health Center. All buildings are currently without water service, Campus Facilities spokeswoman Karlan Seville said.
The east wing of the Parker Hall basement, where Center for Studies of Oral Tradition and Peace Studies Program is housed, had flooded, Seville said. She said the office of Facility Operations and Service Master is cleaning up the water damage.
The office of Energy Management excavated under the eastern steps of Parker Hall to make repairs, Seville said. She said water services will return between 7 and 9 p.m. Monday.
