Flooding causes scramble for boilers after downtown businesses lose hot water

Water flooded the street and the main plant for Ashley Energy, which provides steam to major downtown buildings through a 15-mile underground maze of of pipes sometimes called the "steam loop."

The City Justice Center, Busch Stadium, The Dome at America's Center, Westin St. Louis Hotel, Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel, Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark and six other buildings were all affected by the outage.

Similar outages had resulted in a week of closures, Hadley said. But none of the businesses closed this time.
