URBANA — Some residents of Clark Lindsey Village have been moved to hotels on Thanksgiving Eve after a major “major” water outage caused flooding in Urbana’s retirement community.
“For the safety and comfort of our residents who live in our condominiums, we are helping them move temporarily into hotel rooms we have secured, or stay with their families,” Depp Reardans, President and CEO, said Wednesday night. “We are working as quickly as possible to minimize any inconvenience and to get residents back to their apartments.”
The cause of the main water outage, to which the Urbana Fire Department responded, is still under investigation.
Officials said flooding occurred in some common areas of Clark-Lindsey, but no apartments were affected.
In a press release on Wednesday, Clark Lindsay said the relocation plan did not affect Meadowbrook Health Center, Green House Homes or Meadows Edge residents.
Officials added that nursing care, dining, maintenance and other services continue to operate.
Clark Lindsay said the water supply was cut while repairs were being made.
