Wilson Hall, which remained closed most of Friday after suffering flood damage Thursday evening, has reopened.
A burst pump in the City of Montreal pumping station on Dr. Penfield Avenue caused severe flooding in parts of the downtown campus.
The leak, which was plugged approximately one hour after the flooding began, caused thousand of gallons of water to pour down McTavish Street. The street, which was closed last night, reopened this morning, although there is no vehicular access to Dr. Penfield from McTavish until further notice.
The Redpath and McLennan library buildings, which also closed Thursday, reopened at 8 a.m. Friday morning. Service Point also reopened earlier today. No other buildings were closed.
Friday classes at Wilson Hall, located at 3506 University Street, were relocated. While some damage occurred on the building’s lower level to aid in the pumping of water, it will be repaired in due course.
Monday classes at Wilson Hall will be held as scheduled.
