Six University of Iowa pianos moved to rented space in 2008 to avoid floodwaters have sustained heavy water damage from a leaky toilet and sink pipe at the building where they’d been moved.
University spokesman Tom Moore told the Iowa City Press-Citizen that an Iowa City police officer noticed water coming from the building a little before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Moore says university officials were notified by 6 a.m., but he says the damage to the pianos had already been done.
One of the damaged pianos was a Steinway concert grand valued at $120,000.
Ten pianos had been moved to the building. Four of them sustained only minimal damage.
