The Richland County courthouse was back open Thursday, after having to close its doors to the public Wednesday, when a waterline break flooded its two lower floors. All of the muddy water has been mopped-up and fans are drying the carpets, as clean-up efforts continue. Buildings and Grounds Superintendent Chuck Minich says damage is minimal, and only 18 boxes of records were harmed. They will be freeze-dried to remove the moisture from the papers, and should be salvaged. Minich expects replacing the ceiling tiles to take two weeks, but since those two lower floors are not used for anything but the law library and storage, they don't need to work with a sense of urgency. The cost of the damage is still being calculated.
