OREGON, Ill. (WTVO) – A service line pipe broke inside the Oregon Living & Rehabilitation Center broke at about 3:15am Friday.
Water was in the common place area, but did not make it into any resident’s room.
Dana Payton, Director of Operations, said all 49 residents are being transported to other facilities as the center works on getting the water line repaired.
They are unsure how long it will take to fix the pipes and water damage.
City employees tell Eyewitness News, the pipe that broke was not part of the Oregon Water & Sewer Department system, but city employees did assist in shutting off the leak.
