Water service for two academic buildings restored by temporary fix; sinkhole remains

By Gabriel Donahue, editor-in-chief

A temporary repair has restored water service to Hawkins Hall and the Psychology building after being shut off Thursday evening due to a water main break.

Lecture Hall remains without water until underground work on the water main can be completed, Towson University announced Sunday evening in a campus-wide email. Restrooms remain offline.

Work to permanently fix the problem will be completed after the semester ends.

Towson facilities staff also discovered a small sinkhole in a Freedom Square walkway, which will require additional work, the university said Sunday. A pedestrian detour was erected Thursday, fencing off the side of the Square closest to Smith Hall.

The connection between the water main problem and the sinkhole is unknown.
