Reporting a leak, how to
When a water leak is noticed and it is minor and not causing damage to collections or equipment, report it to Joseph Watson x5487. If you don't reach Joseph, leave him a message about the leak and then contact Facilities Services directly at x5472. If FS is closed (evenings and weekends) call the Office of Public Safety and ask them to reach FS on-call personnel if deemed necessary. Describe the situation giving them all details as needed and realistically indicating the severity of the situation. If placing a basket under the leak until regular FS staff can come during normal working hours will suffice, please do so but inform PS so that they can have the night watch guard check on the leak.
If the water leak is severe and if collections or equipment are at risk, please notify FS or PS as above immediately, making it clear that the situation is dire and FS staff are needed to shut off the water or divert the flow ASAP. Then take actions as necessary to protect items from damage referring to the Emergency Manual section on Flooding and Water Damage for specific procedures.
