Dozens of lawyers and disgruntled people were milling around after being turned away at the entrance doors by court sheriffs. The doors were opened just after 10 a.m.

EPCOR spokesman Tim le Riche said the water main break occurred west of 97 Street, near 102A Avenue, and a number of buildings were affected. The water was shut off at 6 a.m. and workers were later able to set up temporary service while still working on the problem, he said.
