Bain center is to reopen Wednesday

January 18, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Florence Bain Senior Center in west Columbia will reopen Wednesday, according to Howard County officials.

Flooding from a burst sprinkler pipe Jan. 11 closed the center last week. Workers dried carpets and walls after the pipe broke in the ceiling of an exercise room, pouring out water to a depth of 4 inches.

The exercise room where the pipe broke will remain closed for several weeks, until a new wood laminate floor can be installed, said Arleen Dinneen, director of the center.

Machines have bored into walls to dry them, and rugs have been dried and treated to prevent mold. Dinneen said that furnishings would be removed from storage and brought back to the center, at 5470 Ruth Keeton Way, on Tuesday.

Information: 410-313-7213.
