Grass Valley Charter closed due to pipe leak

Grass Valley Charter School, located at 225 South Auburn St. in Grass Valley, is closed pending the repair of a leaking pipe.

Grass Valley Charter School was closed Tuesday due to a break in the main water pipe.

The problem was discovered around 10 p.m. Monday under the sidewalk in front of the school, said Grass Valley Charter Assistant Principal Scott Maddock.

"Right now, we're working on efforts to bring up the sidewalk to get a good look at what damage there was to the pipe," he said.

The school itself sustained no damage, but water was seeping up from the cracks of the sidewalks and the water has been shut down school-wide, Maddock said.

"We can have it fixed and hopefully be back in school (Wednesday)," he said.
