Recently our beautiful old courthouse building flooded with about a foot of water throughout the entire bottom floor because of a failure of the sump pump meant to prevent this from happening.


Besides addressing the damage to the woodwork and floors, the challenge will be a massive clean up and salvage operation to see what books and materials can be saved and what is a total loss.
