Water Incursions

Reporting a leak, how to: If the water leak is severe and causing damage to library collections or equipment, follow the procedures in the emergency manual here-- http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Emergency_Manuals


When a water leak is noticed and it is minor and not causing damage to collections or equipment, report it to contact Tim Wickland x5241 or Cathy Ekstrom x 3262. If you don't reach Tim or Cathy, leave Tim 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.
