University of Louisville: Gas Leak at Student Recreation Center Construction Site


This is getting to be some sort of a joke…

The University of Louisville has a gas leak, now. In the month of october, the University has reported bed bugs in Ekstrom Library and Unitas Tower, a mold problem in Miller Hall that required evacuation of all the residents, flooding in Ekstrom Library, and now a gas leak near the Student Recreation Center site that is set to open in 2013.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Here’s the press release that was sent via email:

Residents and employees on the west side of Belknap Campus may notice a slight gas smell for the next couple of days. A construction crew drilling on the Student Recreation Center site hit a gas pocket several hundred feet below ground. Water and gas are expected to seep from the well for at least the next day, but at levels that are harmless and probably not detectable by most people off the site.  Fire department and environmental health and safety officers have inspected the site and will continue to monitor it.
