It has been announced that Oliver residence hall water has been cut off. There will be no usage of showers, toilets or sinks. This is applied to every camper staying in Oliver. The construction that is happening on the north side hit a pipe, resulting in water break at 10:37 am.
For now administration would like students to use the restrooms at the Student Union and grab water from other buildings close by. Lawrence water works was called right after the accident for help. They are hoping that the issue will be taking care of by Tuesday morning but, if not all residence may have to relocate and can cause unscheduled problems to the class time and lesson plans.
“I am just concerned about the campers, I want them to be safe and comfortable” said Jeff Browne director of the Kansas Journalism Institute.
Administration will clarify all information to campers. Until then, using water in Oliver is unsafe. To check for updates track #KJI50 on Twitter.
