A Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign was conducting a flight between Fairbanks (PAFA) and Kotzebue Airport (PAOT), Alaska, USA. During landing rollout shortly after touchdown, the aircraft travelled through standing water left of centerline. The flight crew felt a bump as if the aircraft went over a dip (pothole) on the runway.
During the after landing check the flaps were selected up and failed at 15 degrees and could not be reset. After shutdown the flight crew discovered substantial damage to the left-hand inboard flap and wing trailing edge.
During discussion with airport maintenance on duty personnel, it was discovered that a NOTAM referencing standing water on the runway was cancelled the previous day and therefore was unavailable to flight crew. No hazard was signaled before landing by local FSS.
