The source of the incident was a toilet leak (clean water) within the staff restroom located outside of, but attached to the administrative office area.

The water migrated into the principal's office. Twelve carpet squares and eight linear feet of drywall were impacted as determined by the Office of Environment via observation and moisture detection equipment.

The Office of Environment monitored materials until they were dry.

Corrective Actions
September 11th, 2019

The carpet squares were removed so concrete and carpet could dry.

The impacted drywall and fiberglass insulation was removed from the Principal' Office.

Air blowers were placed to dry the backside of the exposed restroom walls (behind the drywall that was removed from the Principal's Office).

After drying was complete, Building Services repaired the wall and installed carpet squares.
