Repairing Damage Caused by Burst Pipes

CINCINNATI (Jeff Hirsh) -- The flood of problems at the building which houses Hamilton County Juvenile Court has gotten worse, literally.

Tuesday afternoon, a sprinkler head burst on the second floor sending thousands of gallons of water down into the first floor and the basement.  Elevator shafts were also flooded.  It was a soggy mess and an impossible place to work .

Some computers were damaged, others were covered up to keep them dry.  The data is believed to be okay because the servers are not impacted, they think. 

There are other floors above the flood which were not impacted by the leak, but power in the entire building has been out so it's been cold, wet, and dark.

And not only that but there is now more water to clean up.

Judge John Williams of the Hamilton County Juvenile Court said, "Yes we had another sprinkler head leak on the other side of the building here. We're having restoration crews cleaning up and trying to mitigate it.  As I indicated yesterday it comes down to having power. We have another facility, our youth center with courtrooms and we can work there, but we want to get the power here because we have a much greater capacity for work here."

In a revised press release Wednesday, due to the power outage the 800 Broadway Building will be closed again Thursday, January 9th.

If you have a Hamilton County Juvenile Court hearing scheduled with either Judge John Williams or Judge Tracie Hunter the hearing will be held at the Juvenile Court Detention Center located at 2020 Auburn Avenue.

If you have a hearing involving a juvenile who is currently in custody at the Court's Detention Center, that hearing will also take place at the 2020 Auburn Ave. Detention Center.

If you have a court hearing that needs to be rescheduled, there's information on how to do that HERE.
