Water Main Break Leaves Apartment Complex Wet

The stairwell at a local apartment complex turned into a water fall early this morning.
PEORIA - The stairwell at a local apartment complex turned into a water fall early this morning. At about 1:00 this morning a water main break on the ground floor at Sterling Towers flooded a stairwell. The water was moving about 750 gallons per minute. There was 5 inches of water on the floor and 6 feet in the elevator shaft. But thanks to quick thinking by the Peoria Fire Department the damage was minimal to apartments.

 

Peoria Housing Authority Executive Director Brenda Coates says "The residents that did come down the stairwell, they are being accommodated in the community room. We provided coffee and donuts for those residents that needed to wait till the elevator was repaired, until they could go back upstairs to their apartment."

 

ServPro assisted with the clean up. Water pressure is still low in the building, but one of the two elevators is now working. The Christmas dinner at Sterling Towers is set to go on as planned at 5:00 p.m.
