If there were damage, it would be covered by Zambelli's liability coverage.
"If it is found there is some sort of damage, the multimillion insurance policy Zambelli took out for this project would cover it," Ruby said.
If there is damage, Mullins said, it will take a couple of years to manifest itself, as copper exposed to the elements by missing pieces of gold leaf will start causing dark stains on the dome.
About 40 percent of a re-gilding project completed in 1990 failed within a decade, resulting in sizable black streaks on portions of the dome. The dome then underwent a full restoration that was completed in 2005.
Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown said General Services would be conducting a post-celebration damage assessment of the entire campus this week.
"We're looking closely at the entire campus to make sure there's no issues to take care of," she said. "We do this after Multifest and Vandalia Gathering, or any other major event."
Otherwise, the three days of Sesquicentennial events attracted large crowds, but with no major incidents, according to Protective Services Division Director Randy Mayhew.
Attendance grew each day, with Saturday's crowd estimated in excess of 30,000, he said.
"With that size crowd, we were blessed that people behaved themselves, and it seemed that everyone had a good time," he said.
The only problems Saturday were heat-related issues, with a number of people taken to onsite facilities for heat exhaustion, and with two requiring additional treatment who were transported off site by ambulance, he said.Reach Phil Kabler at ph...@wvgazette.com or 304-348-1220.
