Burst Pipe At School Injures Worker

SPRING, TX (KTRK) -- A maintenance worker was injured while trying to clean up water that spewed out of a ruptured pipe at a Klein ISD school.

A large heating venting and AC pipe burst on Wednesday morning and flooded the floor of the gym at Klein Collins High School in Spring. The incident also caused the ceiling to start caving in.

A maintenance worker then slipped and fell while cleaning up the mess in the gym. His injuries were severe enough to warrant stitches. 

Broken Pipes Flood Long Term Care Home

WATERLOO — A broken water pipe at Columbia Forest Long Term Care facility, in Waterloo, caused considerable damage Sunday afternoon as water covered much of the second floor and leaked through ceiling tiles to the main floor and a dining room.

Waterloo firefighters were called to the scene around 4:15 p.m. where they discovered the flood, caused when the elbow in a sprinkler system pipe burst.

The pipe was located in an exterior housekeeping closet that had a large exhaust opening leading to the outside which in turn, allowed the bitterly cold air to come in contact with the pipe.

Firefighters moved quickly, removing a toilet and using squeegees to push the water from the floor into the open drain left by the toilet. The sprinkler system also had to be shut down and all furniture removed to prevent damage. A restoration company was called to fix the damage.
