Of those 27 priests, 11 had died by the time the allegations surfaced.  

"It saddens and angers me that we have numbers to report, but unfortunately humanity fails as sin takes root in hearts," Bishop William Medley wrote in the statement.

The company says state officials will most likely lift the order Thursday after an inspection.

OMU spokersperson Sonya Dixon said she is not sure how much water was poured from the breaks, nor does she know the cost of the damage.
