Having one’s house flooded with 1,500 gallons of water is a nightmare for a homeowner. But for Clark State Community College students, it’s a learning experience.

The college held its first Advanced Water Damage Restoration class Monday morning at the new Disaster Recovery Learning Lab. CodeBlue, a Wisconsin-based insurance claims processing company, is using the lab to train future CodeBlue employees, insurers and contractors about repairing water damaged homes.
