Sprinklers spray inside of building at Mesa State

Mesa State College officials were forced to scramble again Thursday to deal with water inadvertently spraying the inside of the new College Center, although this incident didn’t cause any damage.

A fire sprinkler system activated between a set of exterior doors and a set of interior doors on the north side of the building around 4:40 p.m., college spokeswoman Dana Nunn said. The Grand Junction Fire Department responded and shut off the sprinklers. Nunn said college officials don’t know why the system activated.

Officials cleaned up the water, and no damage was reported.

Last weekend, college employees found standing water in the College Center after a series of water pipes froze and burst, damaging several first- and second-story rooms. Officials haven’t determined the reason why the pipes broke.

The college hopes to clean up the damage in time for the start of the spring semester Jan. 17. The $30 million College Center opened last October.
