OBSERVATIONS AND CORRECTIVE ACTIONS
  Item No.                                                 Violations cited in this report must be corrected within the time frames below.
  EHS notified via "On-call" system of hot water outage at facility (18:30). On call system was informed by MC Fire Dispatch of hot water outage.
  EHS first contacted Dispatch and was informed by dispatcher 87 of hot water outage at facility. Dispatcher 87 could not provide further information.
  EHS then contact location and spoke with Manager Kim Weaver (18:40). Manager state that a pipe of the ancillary system had rupture and sprayed water onto
  both hot water heaters. Facility had previously been having performance issues with water heater and service personnel had electrical components of
  water heater uncovered at time of rupture. Water spraying onto electrical components cause units to short out. Manager stated that food preparation operations
  were immediately ceased. Guest were permitted to finish meal but no other persons were permitted to enter facility; facility voluntarily closed.
  EHS arrived on site at 19:20. Food handler were not in kitchen and no food handling was occuring. No guest were present. Inspection of kitchen revealed that all food was placed in refrigeration
  except for sous vide soups and sauces being chilled in large carts of ice and water prior to being stored in the walk-in refrig. All wares were stacked in ware
  washing area. Ancillary system pipe rupture occurred in a utility closet only accessible from exterior of building. Service personnel were on site
  testing and repairing hot water heaters. They reiterated above noted information concerning cause of failure and rupture adding that ventilation
  in exterior door of utility closet allowed excessive cold area into closet potentially causing ancillary pipe to freezer and rupture. They also stated
  desire to close of exterior vents and pointed out that electric heater in closet was not adequate with excessive cold weather.
  Time frame of repair unclear and manager noted that corporate personal had request dispatch of corporate contracted ancillary system repair
  personal.
  No contamination of food preparation, food storage or dining areas appears to have occurred as issue is in exterior utility closet only accessible from outside
  of facility.
  All utilities, except for hot water, are intact; and refrigeration units are operating within appropriate temperature for perishable food storage.
  Facility has Quaternary ammonia sanitizer and test strips for proper sanitizing.
  Once hot water is restored facility is to clean and sanitize all food contact surfaces, and wares.
