Water damages new science center at CCAC

Updated:

Water damaged all five floors of new $28 million K. Leroy Irvis Science Center at the Community College of Allegheny County's Allegheny Campus when pipes burst over the Christmas break, college officials said Thursday.

According to our partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, CCAC interim president Michael Murphy said staffers discovered extensive damage to the building at CCAC's Allegheny Campus when they returned from the Christmas break on Jan. 2.

Donna Imhoff, president of the Allegheny Campus, said many classes originally scheduled for the building have been moved across the campus because staffers are not able to get the facility ready for the start of the spring semester next week.
