2,000 boxes of Colorado archives documents to be checked for damage after multiple pipes leak

Colorado Public Radio: Burst pipes caused water to spread across four floors of the Colorado State Archives in downtown Denver on two days in the last week.

The extent of the damage isn’t yet clear; workers will have to remove about 2,000 boxes of documents and check them for damage, according to Doug Platt, a spokesperson for the state Department of Personnel and Administration.

“We’re still assessing,” Platt said. “Water’s an interesting thing to have to address and restore … What we’re really concerned about is that those things get properly dried, and if they need any kind of restoration, they get restored.”
