We have a moving pit lift in our theater. Last Thursday, we had a concert. At the end of the show, we started pulling cable because we needed to raise the pit because there were riggers coming in to hang motors for our new line arrays and they were going to use our Genie to drill holes and they needed to be further off the stage. Our TD pulled up one of the cables (that was hanging down in the pit area) and it was kinda wet. I had seen some water spilled on stage earlier and assumed that that's where the water came from. We finished putting everything else away and raised the pit to stage level. Chris (the TD) sticks his head through the curtain on the front of the pit, looking down into the bottom of the pit, says something to the effect of "we have a big f***ing problem. Somehow, it had filled with about 6-7 inches of water, completely submerging the conduit with the power for the lift motors. we immediately dropped it back down to house level (not actually sure why...probably would have been smarter to leave it where it was...) and contacted buildings and grounds. it was late so we basically decided to deal with it the next day. We then spent all day Friday pumping out the water. When I left there was still about an inch of water in the. We have no idea where the water is coming from but we think it's ground water. It's very cold, odorless and tastes like water...Can't wait to get back in there tomorrow morning and see if there's more water in it...very strange as we were just underneath it a few weeks ago.
