Water Main Break July 2011
Belknap Campus received only minor damage when the 48-inch main broke at about 6 p.m. Monday. Brook and Floyd Streets were flooded, as was part of Warnock. Viaducts under Eastern Parkway and on Brandeis Avenue were filled with water.

The McDonald's soccer fields on the corner of Floyd and Warnock were submerged, and steps leading from Eastern Parkway to the tennis center were washed away.

Officials from Metropolitan Sewer District estimated that 40 million gallons of water rushed into the immediate area causing the damage. Westbound Eastern Parkway is closed indefinitely as repair work is done.
