Some University of Notre Dame employees might be working elsewhere Monday after a water filter broke in a Notre Dame office building on Sunday.
A Notre Dame spokesman told WSBT-TV that the break caused substantial flooding in the building.
Dennis Brown said that sometime between midnight and 10 a.m. Sunday, a water filter broke on the eighth and ninth floors of Grace Hall, causing substantial flooding from the ninth floor on down in the building. The flooding was discovered at 10 a.m.
Brown said it is not known at this time what caused the water filter to break or whether it was weather-related.
Grace Hall houses a variety of university offices, including human resources, development and public relations, Brown said. The filter broke on the southeast corner of the building, so that area has been affected the worst. The damage includes ceiling tiles that were saturated and collapsed and computer equipment that was flooded.
