SACRAMENTO, CA — Delayed maintenance at the California State University at Sacramento dining hall led to sewage leakage that will now cost over $15,000 to repair, according to The State Hornet.

According to the story, attempts to drain leaking water discovered last week were unsuccessful, resulting in an investigation that found damage to underground sanitary sewage pipeline.

The work will have to be done by an outside company and Facilities and Utilities Director Linda Hafar said that maintenance to the dining hall sewage systems was delayed due to budget constraints resulting from lowered student occupancy, the story stated.

Michael Speros, director of Housing and Residential Life, said that funds from a postponed roofing project will help pay for the sewage repairs so that no other maintenance projects will have to be delayed, the story noted.

Hafar said: "Ultimately, something else will pop up in the future, and we have to deal with it as we have money or as we have the emergency. It''s not a good way to operate."
Occupancy for the dining hall is at 84 percent this semester compared to the usual 90 percent, the story added.
