Human Services Building Re-Opens Today

A water main break on Friday filled the first floor with up to 6 inches of water, forcing the entire building to close

The Times Herald is reporting that most of the county offices in the at 1430 DeKalb Street reopened today after a water main break on Friday forced the building to close.

Luckily the building, which was originally Sacred Heart Hospital, has a secondary water source. Getting the water restored to the building without it would have been expensive according to a county official.

No injuries were reported in the incident though the Coroners Office, the site of the ruptured pipe, was significantly damaged. Their operations have been transfered to the Emergency Operations Center in Eagleville.
