Building Update II- The drippening 🤦‍

2023-02-14 12:28 PM | News Update (Administrator)

When it rains, it pours it seems. The Austin ice storm not only cracked a bunch of branches, but it created a backlog for arborists and tree trimming companies as they struggled to keep up with the sudden demand. So, though we reached out right away to the tree company that trimmed the branches above our building, we are still in a 3 week wait before they would be able to get to us.

In the meantime, we had some windy days and one of the broken branches did come loose and fall on the roof- though it doesn't appear to have done any damage.


And, if that's not enough, it seems that the little hot water heater we have in the building decided now was the time to spring a leak and attempt to flood the hallway outside the control room! Lucky for us, we had a volunteer in the building that day cataloging library books. They heard the dripping, found the leaky water heater, and got a bucket under it before the water could do extensive damage.


We had Austin Water come by and turn off water to the building and now we're getting bids to replace the dead water heater.

Once again, it just goes to show how all these things require vigilance and maintenance in order to keep them ready to support the mission of the ACA!
