I called facilities.  They say with their new purchase approval process, and lead time on parts, that they expect the repair jobs on piping would start early next week.  

There will be a bit of manual alterations to the through hole coming down into the ceiling so we need to do some dust mitigation.  I will order some more cling wrap and salvage some of the plastic sheeting from the last episode.

Checked the piping again this morning.  The water is just a slow drip now. The facilities people put duct tape around the pipe crack and isolated the source of water on the floor above.  Don't think its safe yet to turn the rack back on, given the proximity of the water and the quality of the patch job. 

I called facilities to find out what the status of the job was and the timelines for fixing.  They didn't have the poly pipe in stock and have reordered. The earliest they can get to starting on the job will be Monday.  The guy responsible is away today.  We should call ext 4969 (Caltech plumbing shop) early on Monday to get an update on expected completion time of the job. Until then we should redirect effort into SURF search, noise budgeting, scatter modeling, PID modeling, FSS sub-noise budget etc.
