Rogers County courthouse reopens

CLAREMORE —

 

The Rogers County Courthouse has reopened its doors to the public following a repaired leak in the building’s main water line. 

Doors reopened to the public around 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

The leak was discovered Wednesday afternoon when Rogers County maintenance crews accidentally hit the line while working on the north side of the building. Water was shut off for repairs and the courthouse was closed.

Rogers County Maintenance Director Ryan Baze said crews were working on the leak until approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday evening.  Baze said crews had the leak repaired by 10:30 a.m.

The pressure line held for about an hour before leaking again, said Baze.

“We weren’t able to get the part to fix the leak when we needed it, which pushed us back further than we wanted.” 

Crews received the ordered part to fit the 3-inch pressure line from Tulsa’s HD Supply. It took about two hours to repair the leak, he said.

District 3 Rogers County Commissioner Kirt Thacker brought in a water tanker that temporarily provided water to the building and its cooling system during the repair.
