WINNIPEG — The ACCESS Downtown health clinic will reopen on Monday after a burst water pipe flooded much of the facility earlier this week.

The centre at 640 Main Street suffered water damage after several heating coils froze and burst. It was the second ACCESS centre that experienced flooding next to ACCESS Winnipeg West last Sunday.

The WRHA says a mechanical error with the ventilation system allowed subzero degree air to enter the system freezing several heating coils. The subzero degree air froze the coils and cracked them allowing water circulating within the system to leak into the building at various locations.

Final damage costs have not yet been tallied.
