MARTINEZ -- It was business as usual Monday amid unusual circumstances for employees in the Contra Costa District Attorney's Office, which was flooded by pipes cracked during Sunday morning's 6.0 earthquake on the West Napa Fault.
Pipes on all four floors of the six-year-old building cracked during the 3:25 a.m. quake, DA spokeswoman Bobbi Mauler said. When an investigator arrived for work at 8 a.m. Sunday, there were two inches of standing water in the room that houses the department's computer servers. The investigator and an IT employee, Mauler said, help save the server and the phones.
"We had a restoration outfit come out and sop up the water and they did a great job," Mauler said, adding that no employees had been displaced by the damage.
"By the sight of it, you would have thought it wasn't going to be open Monday," Mauler said.
When it opened in August 2008, the $26 million environmentally friendly building at Ward and Las Juntas streets centralized 150 employees who had operated in four different office spaces in Martinez known for their leaky roofs.
