If your toilet is overflowing, first shut off the water. The water shut-off valve is located behind the toilet. Turn the valve counter clockwise and you should hear the water stop running. Next insert the plunger in the toilet and begin plunging.  The blockage is clear when the water in the toilet starts to drain down.

To turn the water back on, turn the water shutoff valve clockwise. Let water in the tank fill up and flush. If the problem persists, repeat the instructions above. Sometimes it takes a few tries to clear the blockage. If that does not work please contact the Maintenance Department.
