Pipes burst at Georgia College

jmink@macon.comJanuary 8, 2014 

Frigid temperatures caused fire suppression pipes to break Tuesday in two Georgia College & State University residence halls, leading to water damage in several rooms, according to a news release.

About 40 students in The Village at West Campus apartments were affected. Some students must temporarily relocate, with the assistance of university housing, due to the damages. Both buildings continue to have water flow for normal activities, but the fire suppression systems are inoperable until the breaks can be repaired, which is expected to be Friday, the release states.

The fire alarm systems remain operable, and university staff is conducting fire watch rounds in the affected buildings, the release states.

Students who live at The Village and are seeking more information can call university housing at 478-445-5160 or visit www.gcsu.edu/housing.
