The City of Montreal managed to stop the flow of water from the site of the original water main leak at 2 a.m. this morning. This means clean-up and work crews can now tackle the tasks that remain at the James Administration, Wong and Birks Buildings and Wilson Hall, as well as the areas outside these building that need to be cleaned up and made safe.
Classes normally held in Wong and Birks and Wilson Hall have been relocated, at least for this morning. Here is where you can find information about them:
More information about afternoon classes will be posted later, but please note that we do not expect to reopen the Wong building today.
The James Administration Building will remain closed today.
Service Point and the Welcome Centre will be open today, on reduced Wednesday hours, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Again, please be careful walking around the campus (and off) because there are still slippery spots following Monday’s flood.
Finally, a big thank-you to the dozens and dozens of people who have worked very hard and very long to keep the University running as normally as possible in difficult circumstances.
