Department of Risk Management & Safety
Preventing Water Damage
Do not store expensive equipment in basements susceptible to seepage. Keep equipment on pallets or store on shelves. Cover computers, printers and other expensive equipment at the end of each day.
Be sure to close all windows at the end of the day for security reasons. This can also help to prevent the freezing of pipes in the winter, which can lead to serious water damage.
Report all maintenance problems, including water leaks, to Service Operations at 656-2560, or online at http://www.uvm.edu/~uvmppd/Online_Forms/work_order.html.
