The Office of the Environment contacted a board-approved restoration contractor to respond to the event.
Contractors had left a roof penetration open during the current renovation process. It rained the night of July 2 and rain water entered the building.
The Office of the Environment arrived onsite to meet the restoration contractor.
Ceiling tiles, carpet squares and wood casework were primarily impacted. Water was extracted from flooring and fans and dehumidifiers were strategically placed to facilitate drying.

The board-approved restoration contractor re-assessed conditions. Areas were still wet and drying efforts needed to continue.
