Crews Continue Work On Water Damages

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Crews are working around the clock to fix water damages at Crater High School and re-open on Tuesday.

Earlier in the week a water main burst at the school’s Renaissance Academy. Crew members are currently removing about six layers of flooring. They say one side of the building is easier to dry because it’s on concrete. The other half is more difficult because the area was built above the old basketball floor.

“It would have been a lot easier if it was on a concrete slab, but it being like that we had to get a bunch of approvals from the district to remove that. We’ve had a side engineer come in and make sure its okay that the wall s are going to be stable enough for us to remove them,” explained SERVPRO Project Manager Rudy Medina.

Crews expect the entire drying and rebuilding process to take two months. School is expected to open on schedule next week on Tuesday.
