With Jamba Juice reopening Wednesday, public records show Ball State spent about $1,300 to repair the drain inside the restaurant.

Jamba Juice, inside the Art and Journalism Building, closed due to a sanitary drain collapse last semester, shortly before finals week. The drain, which supports part of the east serving area of the smoothie shop, became clogged. A camera was used to view inside the drain line, showing that it had been clogged with mud. 

The only way to fix the problem was to dig up and replace the drain line, Jim Lowe, associate vice president of facilities and planning and maintenance, said in an email sent by university spokesperson Lisa Renze-Rhodes. Repairs took about 13 days.
