Water main break affecting Crofts Hall, Beane Center and HRD Building

Published March 30, 2017 at 5:42 AM

Due to a water main break that occurred overnight, Crofts Hall, Beane Center and HRD Building on UB's North Campus  are closed until noon on Thurday, March 30.  UB Facilities crews have shut off water to the buildings due to the break, which occurred to an outdoor pipe.  Crews are working to repair the break and restore water flow to the buildings.

A second water main break overnight temporarily affected water flow to Ketter Hall and Jarvis Hall.  Facilities crews repaired the break and water was restored to both buildings.  

Non-essential employees who work in affected buildings should plan to report by noon.  Essential employees will have access to their buildings and should contact their supervisors.
