UPDATE: CCSF campus closed due to broken water main

City College of San Francisco’s Ocean Campus is closed today, due to a broken water main, according to the school’s website.

Interim Chancellor Susan E. Lamb sent a message to staff Tuesday evening stating the break is outdoors and has not encroached on any buildings. Lamb added that water to the Ocean campus had to be shut down at 5 p.m. Tuesday evening so that repairs could be performed.

No additional details were available from school officials about the incident as of Wednesday morning.

When Karen Saginor, a City College librarian, was walking out of the campus at the end of the day Tuesday, she noticed something strange outside.

“I looked down and thought look at all that water down on the ground,” Saginor said. But, she said “There were people there taking care of it.”

There was an opening on the slope by the student union building, where some workers looked as if they were trying to assess the problem, she said.

She said the water was flowing faster than opening a tap wide to fill a bathtub. She said it looked like “you know, when it’s raining heavily? It was like that.”

It didn’t look like it would flood anything, she said.

More details will be posted as they become available.
