Cornell's foundry building remains closed this hour after a water main break jeopardized the building's structural foundation. The break, which occurred late yesterday afternoon, has eroded the bank of Fall Creek Gorge to within ten feet of the building, making the structure unsafe for occupancy. Cornell has closed the Foundry until further notice, according to a University statement issued earlier this afternoon. The Foundry is part of Cornell's College of Art, Architecture and Planning and manufactures various metal castings and also houses a kiln. Students and staff who need to remove items from the foundry can make arrangements with contact the Dean's Office for the College of Architecture, Art and Planning by calling 255-9110. Cornell has civil engineers working at this hour to develop a plan to stabilize the building's foundation. Cornell will provide more information on this process as it becomes available, likely early next week. The University advises people to stay out of the gorges, especially now as there is a hazard of falling debris, rocks, trees and soil from the land that the water main break dislodged.
