First floor of Aycock Hall reopens after water leak

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The first floor of Aycock Hall on ECU’s campus has re-opened after a water leak.

Officials say a 2-inch pipe connection broke away from the wall in a men’s bathroom on the first floor Wednesday morning around 1:30 a.m.

On call plumbers shut down the water to make repairs. However, water from the pipe flooded much of the first floor and parts of the basement.

Some residents had to be temporarily relocated during the clean-up; others stayed with friends.

Campus Living staff responded by 2 a.m. to begin removing the water, working until 5 a.m. A private fire restoration company then arrived to complete basic clean up.

The first round of clean up was complete by about 6:30 a.m.
