New SUNY Broome Residence Hall Damaged By Water

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

SUNY Broome Community College officials say six suites in the school’s new housing complex were damaged when a plumbing fixture failed.

Officials say a fitting on a hot water heater failed last weekend in the building on the town of Dickinson campus.

The suites sustained “various degrees” of water damage.

Crews have been repairing damage to drywall, flooring and furniture. Similar plumbing connections have been reinspected and no problems were detected.

College officials say the residence hall will be ready to open August 30. They say construction insurance should cover the cost of the water damage.

The fixture failure was not quickly detected because it happened during the evening when the building was unoccupied.

The $18 million Student Village at SUNY Broome will be able to house more than 300 students.
