Curtis Blackwell, Maintenance Supervisor for the Juneau School District, shows on Monday, April 8, 2018, how high the water came up on one of the two boilers at the Marie Drake building during a flooding event at the school on Friday. Spare parts were found to get the boiler running and the school open. A corroded pipe at the base of a hot water tank was the source of the leak. (MIchael Penn | Juneau Empire)
