WASHINGTON CO. EXPO OFFICES, EVENT CENTER FLOODED DURING WINTER STORM

  

Several facilities at the Washington County Expo suffered damage as a result of February’s winter storm.

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 country creations building will temporarily house office operations while flooding damages are fixed at the office building. The event center was also damaged.

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.

  1. And it all could have been prevented by turning off the water & draining the pipes before the freeze instead of after.

    1. I agree completely. They knew what was coming! What did they think was going to happen?!

    2. I agree completely! Is there no full time maintenance at the county barns and facilities?!?! Whose job was it to be pro active in the maintenance and up
      Keep of these facilities!!! Whoever dropped the ball on this, if they are a paid person, they don’t need to be in charge of anything!!!
