Socks Clogging UAF Sewage System

Dan Bross, KUAC – Fairbanks

Vandalism at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Fine Arts building is causing serious plumbing problems. UAF Superintendent of Maintenance Bill Cox says the complex’s sewage handling system has been targeted since late last year.

Cox says incidents have increased in recent weeks, with several socks being removed from system on a daily basis. He says the children’s size socks have resulted in a lot of trouble.

Cox says repairs have cost about $15,000 so far.  He says the University does not know what’s going on and why.  Officials have not been able to correlate the attacks to any type of grievance someone may have with the university.
