Oklahoma State Buildings Close Over Water Concerns

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Low water pressure in about a dozen state buildings has forced officials to close them due to health and safety concerns.

Michelle Day, administrator of the Division of Capital Assets Management, said Tuesday the problems were related to the deadly tornado that struck Moore on Monday.

Oklahoma City officials say power was restored Tuesday to a water treatment plant that lost power during the storm.

Day says low water pressure affected her agency's ability to keep restrooms open throughout the Capitol complex. Officials say some personnel remained on the job to provide essential services. Others were on on-call during normal working hours.

Affected agencies are expected to resume their normal operations on Wednesday.

Buildings affected included those housing the Department of Transportation and the Attorney General's Office.
