Water break at KU’s Oliver Hall

High school campers at the Kansas Journalism Institute  will be without water in Oliver Hall.  This morning at 10:37 am, road construction crews hit a water main on the north side of Kansas University, preventing the building from receiving water


Residents cannot

  • flush the toilets
  • take showers
  • eat or drink within Oliver Hall

“In my time at Kansas this has never happened before,” Jeff Browne, KJI Director, said.

Lawrence Water Works has been called to repair the water lines as quickly as they possibly can to keep all 126  campers safe and comfortable.

The company has yet to release when the water will be turned back on to the public, but Browne said the water is anticipated to be back on by Tuesday morning. Check back for more updates later.
