Lied Recreation Athletic Center is considered dry, but will have to undergo cleaning and environmental test prior to reopening.

Members of Facilities and Planning Management, Environmental Health and Safety, recreational services and ServiceMaster employees performed an official walkthrough Wednesday and determined there are areas of the building that still require attention, said Recreational Services Director Mike Giles.

“We inspected every nook and cranny of the first floor,” Giles said. “We’re going to go ahead and let ServiceMaster get in there and address the areas of concern clean, and on Tuesday we will preform environmental tests.”

Giles said the tests are conducted by the university’s department of Environmental Health and Safety. If the tests produce positive results, recreational services will begin the process of reopening the building to students and patrons.
