After the Flood, Clifton Campus looks for the light

Following the water line break that closed Clifton Campus for a week, much activity has taken place-- but relatively few members of the College community have witnessed the actions taken to re-start classes and services.

Daily News appreciates those who took a few moments to document and share on-campus scenes from the past several days, including the eerie darkness on the second floor of the Main Building when electrical power is off (above).

We invite others to send us your "memories" from the past week and/or photos of classes and services that are restarting in new locations after the disruption.

The flood caused by a broken water line in the fire suppression system was discovered early on Monday, Aug. 31. After a full day of pumping, a large amount of water remained in the boiler room and other portions of the Main Building.

Large fans helped clear the odor of diesel fuel from the Main Building.

After power was restored to the ATLC and HPB on Friday, Sep. 4, relocation of lab and classroom equipment could begin. Some work started on Monday, Sep. 7, and continued on Tuesday, Sep. 8.

Gail Quinlan and Ann Gunkel packed and moved carts of materials to their new locations.

Doug Bowling helped set up computer lab equipment.

Engineering faculty members Ron Singleton, Ralph Whaley, and Russ Campbell prepared to move specialized lab equipment from Main to new spaces.

Meanwhile, the Facilities team worked on adjusting wiring and installing temporary air conditioning equipment in the Health Professions Building, which was uncomfortably warm on Tuesday because the chillers for the HPB system are located in Main.
