Flooding and Water Damage

Emergency Response Guidelines

Serious water damage can occur from a number of sources: overland flooding, broken water pipes, clogged drains, damaged skylights or windows, or leaking roofs.

If flooding or water leaks occur:

  • Contact Security Services 8.204.786.6666. Security Services will immediately advise Physical Plant;
  • If there is a hazard of electrical shock evacuate the area immediately;
  • If safe to do so take steps to avoid or reduce water damage by covering vulnerable objects;
  • If you know the source of the water and are confident of your ability to stop it (e.g. unclog the drain, turn off the water, etc) do so.
