A building on the campus of California State University, Sacramento, suffered water damage when a heating system valve broke Thursday night or early Friday.
The leak occurred in Modoc Hall, at the south end of the campus, which houses agencies that work in partnership with the university, including the Office of Water Programs, said Craig Koscho, campus spokesman. The building manager received a call from campus police reporting the leak about 6:10 a.m. Friday and was on scene within 45 minutes, he said.
Koscho said the broken valve was on the fourth floor and water ran down, affecting portions of the lower floors. Because many of the people with offices in the building telecommute, only about five people were displaced from offices Friday, he said.
A firm that specializes in restoration work was called, and the extent of the damage is being assessed. Koscho said the building remained open.
