Norton Hall Flooding Update

Published March 9, 2017 at 5:01 PM

UB’s Facilities Operations has been successful in drying most of the space affected by the flooding in Norton Hall. It is anticipated that occupants will move back into their ground and first floor offices during the week of March 13. UB’ Office of Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) will continue to monitor and test the affected area for persistent moisture and humidity.

A root cause analysis of the sprinkler failure is ongoing, however, preliminary results indicate a possible sprinkler head malfunction. The sprinkler head has been replaced.
