Repairs to flooded school to cost about $100K
BRISTOL, R.I. —
The town of Bristol will spend nearly $100,000 to fix damage done to Mount Hope High School after parts of it flooded when a pump burst.
Crews recently got the go-ahead to make repairs.
The pipe burst July 17.
It filled one area of the school with water that was measured at 11 feet deep.
The pump is also connected to the sprinkler system inside the high school and water damaged wooden floors and the principal's office.
School officials said most of the money will go to repair the pump.
School officials told NBC 10 that the flooding didn't disturb summer school, and repairs won't affect the start of school.
