>>>UPDATE 2:37 p.m. The water in the SRC came back on around 12:40 p.m. after Physical Plant Management completed repairs on the line, Francis said.

>>>UPDATE 9:15 a.m. The SRC remains without water, Francis said. He said he hopes the water will be turned back on by noon today. Francis said the water was shut off after a line that feeds into the building naturally settled and cracked. The cost to repair the line and related parts is estimated to be $5,000, according to Francis.

There is currently no water available in the Student Recreation Center, said Jimmy Francis, director, SRC .

No water includes bathrooms, sinks and water fountains.

“There’s a break esentially in the water line that feeds the building,” Francis said.

The approximate time that the break will be fixed is Wednesday around noon, and the cost to fix the break has not yet been estimated, Francis said.

He added that the break is not related to construction being done on the outdoor artificial turf field in front of the SRC, as some students and employees have said.
