BROOKVILLE---Jefferson County officials now know what caused the water pipes to leak in the courthouse, but they still have questions about why the building’s system keeps failing. The system in question is the eight air packs installed in the building. These are involved with air circulation and bring air in from outside. But the cold air coming in is not being heated correctly, and engineers are still trying to figure out why that is. However, their research has drawn some conclusions. “The water flow to probably three of the heating coils was not adequate to keep them from freezing, and they were exposed to freezing temperatures,” said the President of CenterPoint Engineering, William Deloache. Those freezing temperatures caused the pipes to freeze and burst, but what engineers can’t figure out is why the cold air is getting to the pipes in the first place. Commissioners say part of the problem may be communication. “The last 10 days, since we had the second break, basically we’ve had the architects and engineers, a lot of insurance people have been around, they brought their own engineers in, and, of course, right now everyone’s pointing their fingers at each other,” Commissioner Jeffrey Pisarcik said. Deloache said they are getting conflicting reports about what settings were on or off on the system at the time of the leaks, so it’s difficult to get an accurate record to trace the problem. Repairs will start right away, and architects and engineers will continue to monitor the system. They hope to have everything in the courthouse back to normal in four to six weeks. The Jefferson County Courthouse is heated and functional, and will remain open while repairs are being done.
