Someone poured soap into the fountain outside the Brooks Student Center in Gorham, contaminating the air cooling system for the building. According to Carl Hill, assistant director of Facilities Services for Gorham Student Life the main concern is that certain soaps are corrosive. Depending on how long the soap ran through the system, if the soap was corrosive, major damage may have been caused. In order to fix the system, it needs to be drained, flushed out, and then started all over. The fountain has been shut down for the season and the cost of the damage is yet known.
