Water Leak in FabLab

This is to let you know that today (August 8), around 3pm, I came in to use the CAD workstation. I felt some water coming down from the ceiling above–first, a slight mist, then I dodged a full-on cascade of water.

Jim Dallam was here, and helped me put up plastic sheeting to protect items on the shelves above.

Jim also found out that Josh, the guy who lives above us, had a dishwasher backup, and that is likely the cause of the leak. Josh has since turned off the dishwasher for now.

I’m cross-posting this to broken@hive13 as well.


Oh the joys of an old building with someone’s leaky plumbing overhead.

Seems like you did what can be done. Thanks.
