NOTICE: Barge Hall Water Damage

Early Saturday morning (2/13), Barge Hall experienced a fire suppression system failure which resulted in significant flooding throughout the east end of the building. The Facilities Management Department (FMD) has been continuously working on clean-up of the water damage to ensure the building will be safe for re-entry. This effort will continue through Tuesday, February 16th, 2021.

While we understand that everyone is anxious to see their workstation, at this time we ask that you stay out of the building so that Facilities can properly clean and remediate any damage to make it safe for entry. Facilities will work with Department Heads and Supervisors regarding re-entry and expect to have limited entry on Wednesday, February 17th, 2021.

If you have any immediate questions, please contact Shane Scott, Associate Vice President, Campus Planning and Facilities Management, or 509-963-1289.
