San Marcos Activity Center closed indefinitely due to water damage

SAINT MARK

The activity center has water damage

The San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E Hopkins Street, will be closed indefinitely due to water damage to the building early Friday. Officials said the flooding appears to be the result of a 3-inch pipe that disconnected from its coupler, causing several inches of water to cover the entire facility.

Police were alerted around 3am after a resident saw water pouring from the building. Officers notified the fire department and crews successfully shut off the water to the building.

The city’s insurance company has been notified and is assessing the damage and providing assistance where possible.

Due to water damage, the polling place that was to be in the center will be moved to the lobby of the San Marcos Public Library, 625 E Hopkins Street. The polling station inside the library lobby will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Current subscriptions will be suspended and automatic payments will be suspended during this time. Guests with items remaining in their lockers are asked to contact the Activity Center for assistance in retrieving their belongings.

Staff members are working to identify other recreational options and meeting spaces to offer the community. Total Wellness classes will continue virtually. Residents are encouraged to enjoy the city’s sidewalks, trails and natural spaces while the activity center remains closed.
