Utility Emergency

Any emergency involving a utility (for example: electrical wires, water mains or pipes, drains, restroom facilities, steam pipes, natural gas pipes) need to be reported to LCC Police immediately. Dial 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone or 1800 to report the emergency. LCC Police will contact the appropriate personnel to respond.

Downed electrical power lines should always be treated as if they were charged with electricity. Do not go near downed electrical power lines. Go to a safe place and contact LCC Police.

A water main break may be evidenced by water seeping up through a sidewalk or roadway. Avoid the area, as the water may have weakened the soil underground, which could collapse. Report the situation to LCC Police.

Leaking or broken water pipes or restroom fixtures inside campus buildings should be reported immediately to Physical Plant during normal business hours by calling (517) 483-1808 or to LCC Police during all other times.

Steam and natural gas pipe leaks can represent a critical emergency. Do not go near a leak. Evacuate the area and contact LCC Police.

  • Steam or vapor in the air, or excessively high temperature conditions could be indications of a steam leak. Do not go near or touch steam escaping from a pipe, as steam under pressure can cause serious burns.
  • Natural gas leaks may be noticed by the distinctive odor associated with natural gas. Do not turn on or off any lights or other electrical or electronic devices in the area where the smell is present. Leave the area as quickly as possible and contact LCC Police from a safe location.
