Flooding at BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing from a rain storm on Wednesday night will not force summer classes to relocate to an off-campus facility when they resume Monday.
Water was found in a chemistry lab, a medical assistant lab, a hallway and three classrooms, according to Brian Opitz, BC3’s executive director of operations. About 1 1/2 inches of water was found at its deepest part.
Summer classes at the college are not in session for the holiday weekend, but may be moved to other rooms on campus to avoid water damage.
Maintenance staff began drying the affected rooms on Wednesday night with fans and dehumidifiers. They also adjusted the facilities heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
There are no health or safety concerns for students, staff or faculty, according to Opitz.
Maintenance staff will continue to assess the damage and drying processes.
