Stott Building's 9-Story Waterfall Went Unnoticed For Days

New, 17 comments

Drying out the David Stott Building will require more than just a few large beach towels, reports CBS. The skyscraper's basement is now six feet underwater thanks to a broken water main near the 9th floor, which unleashed a deluge estimated at two million gallons. The report adds that the water flowed for days before anyone noticed. Workers are currently trying to keep the pool from freezing while awaiting city permission to pump the floodwater out into the sewers.
