Deco Deli was closed Tuesday because of a flood caused by water leaking from the ceiling, the general manager of TCU Dining Services said.
The flood most likely occurred on Monday night or Tuesday morning, said Rick Flores, general manager at Dining Services. Unsure of the cause of the leak, Flores said it was most likely a water pipe eruption in Reed Hall.
“The main concern was to fix the water leaking from the ceiling,” Flores said. “We also had to dry out the flooded equipment and make sure everything was sanitized.”
Deco Deli was clean and functional an hour before opening, but the staff did not have enough time to prepare for lunch, Flores said.
“It was tough not being able to serve the students, because we really look forward to that,” Flores said. “But we didn’t want to take any risks.”
Deco Deli will be open during regular hours today from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
