Early on Monday, Aug. 31, it was discovered that the basement level in the Main Building on Cincinnati State's Clifton Campus had been flooded by water coming from a break in a pressurized water pipe that feeds the building's fire suppression system.

The College engaged multiple specialist companies to remove the water and restore the electrical and other systems on Clifton Campus. Power was restored to the Health Professions Building (HPB) and the Advanced Technology and Learning Center (ATLC) on Sept. 8. Work is continuing to restore systems in the Main Building.

No damage occurred in HPB or ATLC. While the Main Building remains closed for assessment and repairs, classes and services that were in Main have been relocated to HPB or ATLC. In a few instances, specialized labs have moved to other locations. Students have received additional information from their instructors.
