Mitchell Technical Institute is closing early today due to a break in a water line on the third floor of Campus Center.

All MTI classes Monday afternoon have been called off, said Julie Brookbank, MTI’s director of marketing and communication.

“We have water currently coming down three floors with a lot of people mopping and cleaning up,” Brookbank said. “Today has been quite a day.”

Brookbank said the problem is in the ceiling’s sprinkler system, forcing water to be shut off at Campus Center.

“Unfortunately, a lot of it has occurred over the top of our library,” Brookbank said. “We have a lot of plastic being draped, a lot of water vacuums and a lot of mops, and we’re trying to get some crews from the school district to try to get as much out of the library before anything else happens.”

Brookbank said it will be determined later today whether classes will resume Tuesday.
