Burst Pipe Floods Community Center in Pocatello

Teachers and faculty of the Pocatello Community Charter School in Pocatello walked into to what nearly amounted to an indoor pool when they found the entire western wing of the school flooded with water.

In all six classrooms, a library and one office were flooded when a water pipe leading to one of the classroom drinking fountains burst.

“We had to cancel school for the day and bring 21st Century Remodeling in to do the cleanup,” PCCS Dean Dr. Martha Martin said. “We’re leaving it up to them to decide if anyone else needs to be called to fix the problem.”

Idaho Fire and Flood Restoration is also working to clean up the water.

The school administration waited until just before 8 a.m. Monday to make the decision to cancel classes on account of the flooded rooms.

“The parents and staff worked really well with the new emergency school closure,” Martin said. “We’ve got a new system that sends out text messages and phone calls to alert the parents of the situation and it worked really well for us today.”

The extent of the damage is not yet known, but there was standing water in all eight rooms as well as the hallway.
