Water damage at DHS to be repaired

A burst water pipe from January continues to cause problems at the Danbury High School gym.  There were what's been called “skate park-” like humps on the floor.   A flooring company has tried cutting up the floor and drying out the water, but this has been a temporary fix.  Sites and facilities coordinator Mike Seelig says the moisture moves underneath the floor because it’s all shellacked, the moisture doesn't have a chance to dry out and moves under the floor and the humps pop up somewhere else.  The plan is to fix the damage to the floor of the old gym, elevator and weight room ceiling, which has an estimated cost of 400-thousand dollars.  The Board of Education is going to file a claim with Danbury’s insurance company to do the repairs, but must meet the $250,000 deductible.  The city and schools share an insurance policy.  The City Council will now be asked to take the money out of Danbury’s fund balance. The estimate for the floor is $295,000, $30,000 for the elevator and the District is waiting for price on the weight room ceiling repairs.  Seelig says the x factor is how long its going to take to dry out underneath because if it’s a hot, humid summer that could extend the timeline.
