Cold temperatures Monday night caused a pipe to burst at a state agency in downtown Madison affecting six floors in the building, officials said.
State Department of Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said the Department of Natural Resources building on South Webster Street will return to normal operations on Wednesday.
The DOA said a pipe burst causing flooding down the west side of the building Monday night.
DNR Spokesman Bill Cosh said sub-zero temperatures caused the pipe in the HVAC system to break.
Officials became aware of the flooding water issue at about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, and the building was closed to employees around 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
Cleanup crews were at the building, sometimes referred to as the G.E.F. II building, cleaning up water with wet vacuums, replacing damaged ceiling tiles and evaluating reparation needs.
Other than the repairs, officials said the impact to workstations or computer equipment was minor.
