Flooding & Water Damage

Serious water damage can occur from a number of sources such as broken pipes, clogged drains and broken skylights or windows.

If a water leak occurs:

  • Remain calm.
  • Call University Police at 911 IMMEDIATELY. Advise the dispatcher of exact location and severity of the leak. Indicate whether any valuables, art collections or books are involved, or are in imminent danger. University Police will notify the appropriate authorities and dispatch officers to assist.
  • Notify your supervisor of the extent and location of the leak.
  • If there are electrical appliances or electrical outlets near the leak, use extreme caution. If there is any possible danger, evacuate the area.
  • If you know the source of the water and are confident of your ability to stop it (i.e. unclog the drain, turn off
    water, etc.) do so cautiously.
