Houstonian: Broken pipe sends Bearkat Village residents to University Hotel

From the Houstonian:
Three apartments flooded at Bearkat Village I last Wednesday. Of the three apartments, only one bedroom in each unit was affected. Ron Pettitt, Facilities Manager at SHSU, said Friday, "a pipe broke and got carpet wet in three apartments." Pettitt further explained that the pipe ran through the walls next to the affected apartments.

Pettitt said the cause of the pipe breaking is simply "one of those things with new construction." He said the contractor, C.F. Jordan, was repairing the apartments on Friday. They will have to replace the carpet in the apartment and sheetrock in the three bedrooms.

The three students whose apartments were flooded are staying at the University Hotel while the repairs are being made.

The primary maintenance issues with Bearkat village has been plumbing problems. "We've had some problems, most of them seem to be plumbing," JoEllen Tipton, Director of Resident Life, said.
