GLENVILLE, W.Va. – Cleanup is underway at a Glenville State College dorm after a water main break.

GSC officials said about 20 students were affected by the break and have been moved to other rooms for the rest of the semester. The college called in a cleaning crew shortly after the break and will be renovating those rooms to repair the damage.

College President Mark Manchin replied to student concerns about mold being discovered, but he said none was found and that any such issues will be addressed.

“We’re aware of that, and we will be addressing it now through mitigation with the professionals to ensure that our students and all involved are safe,” Manchin said.

Officials said those rooms would be closed for the remainder of the semester to allow restoration work to proceed.
