Water main break forces Kirkwood's Iowa City campus to close

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

A water main break is forcing college students to stay home.

Classes have been canceled at Kirkwood's Iowa City campus.

Thomas Kaldenberg, associate vice president for facilities and security, tells KWWL they need to shut off the water to the buildings to fix the problem which could take all day.

A main line, about six feet deep, broke under a driveway.

Kirkwood's Iowa City campus has some Saturday classes. The school will make an announcement later Friday if it needs to cancel those as well.
