Burst Pipe Damages School Building

Contractors are assessing damages after a burst water pipe inside the new Lake Washington High School building leaked water for at least two days on the weekend of March 19-20.

Kathryn Reith, communications director for the Lake Washington School District, said contractors discovered the leakage the following Monday on March 21.

"A pipe leading to an eyewash station burst, leading to the water leakage," said Reith, noting the incident happened in a science room. "The contractor has been working to remedy any problems."

She said the extent of damages is currently unknown.

Kirkland resident Jeff Ridley noticed "water running out of a second floor window" at the school on March 19.

"I tried calling the contractor, but nobody was on-call for emergency situations," said Ridley. "Sunday the water was still running out the window and the windows were wet on the inside. Monday I noticed an army of vehicles on-site working on a water-damage situation."

He added a 24-hour emergency contact posted at the job site may have saved crews "a fair amount of damage."
