LVL1 temporarily closed!

Due to some plumbing and drainage problems caused by a sinkhole, LVL1 is temporarily closed as of June 17th, 2012. We are working with MSD and Louisville Metro to resolve the problem and hope to be open to the community again ASAP. Check http://www.lvl1.org for updates and information as they become available. Questions can be directed to info@lvl1.org. We apologize for any inconvenience.

UPDATE 6/19:

The landlord’s team has has rerouted the roof drain to flow into the
alley itself, rather than continue washing out underneath the alley.

MSD has 4 trucks at our place as I type this. It is confirmed that
buildings in our alley are connected to a previously unmapped sewer
drain going out to Logan St. It is also confirmed that MSD filled this
up with sand, thus leading us to our current unfortunate situation.

MSD is going to be vacuuming out all the sand (from them) and debris
(from rainwater washout) from this newly discovered drainage line.
This is going to happen either today, or at the latest tomorrow. It
depends on how long it takes them to mark all the utility poles and
clear any other hiccups.

Tonight’s meeting is tentatively cancelled, unless work is performed
today and we have some time to perform any necessary clean-up. If this
changes, we will update everyone and the Tues meeting will be back on.

UPDATE 6/21

MSD work is still ongoing. Lines have all been marked, but a 6″ gas line was discovered while digging an entry point for vacuuming out the clogged drainage line. This has slowed work for safety concerns, but not too much. Stay tuned, spacers!

WARNING: DIY GRAPHIC VIDEO

A son of one of LVL1′s members got a little too close to a bandsaw over the Christmas break… Remember, safety first! But what started as a lesson on what *not* to do (i.e. don’t be too cavalier with a bandsaw) turned into a nice lesson on DIY stitches. Why would you stitch yourself up? His explanation was “something something waiting rooms something something scar tissue.”

Remember if you can’t fix your body, you don’t own your body.
