The Restaurants at Woodland in Forest Quad are once again open after closing twice for water problems within the last four days, Executive Director of Dining Rahul Shrivastav said.

The two problems were a waste waterline break Friday and a subsequent drain blockage Monday. The problems were each fixed within 24 hours of their occurrences, minimizing any inconvenience.

In accordance with health department standards, the Round and the Clubhouse closed due to a blockage on Monday. As per protocol, an inspection was also completed before the reopening of any restaurants during both incidences, Shrivastav said.

The other restaurants were kept open to help make sure people had access to food while the blockage was fixed and the Friday break was severe, Shrivastav said.

“We had water about four inches on the floor everywhere,” Shrivastav said.

Shrivastav said the mess was cleaned up and all concepts were up and running by Saturday morning.

“We have many students’ health in our hands, so we have to be very very focused on their health,” Shrivastav said.
