During today’s (Monday) Washington County Commissioners meeting, Expo Director Harrison Williams said pipes burst at the Expo, causing the office building and the event center to flood Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.
The two facilities suffered major damage, with Williams adding there was also minor damage to the sales facility and barns 1 and 2. He expects the repairs for the office building and event center to take at least four months, but noted that damages could have been much worse had staff not come in Wednesday morning to turn the water off.
As repairs are completed, office operations will relocate to the country creations building, located directly behind the current office building. Staff are working with those who have booked the event center during the scheduled repair timeframe to either reschedule their events or move them to another facility onsite.
