Facilities Services has scheduled a campus-wide steam outage to conduct maintenance and make repairs at the Steam Plant and across the steam distribution system. The outage will begin on Sunday, May 9 at 6pm, and steam will be restored by Sunday, May 16 at 11:30pm. The outage will affect the following and should be noted by anyone who will be living and/or working on campus during this time.
The outage will affect:
Domestic hot water in most buildings on the main campus (meaning hot water in restrooms, kitchens, break rooms, etc.)
Sterilization for autoclaves and sterilizers that use steam
Digesters at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital
Building Heat (Newer buildings will experience cooler than normal temperatures)
While we are aware that the outage may cause an inconvenience for some, we ask that you please remain patient as it is a necessary part of taking care of our campus and serving our students, staff, faculty and fans well. If you have questions about this outage, please contact Sam Ledford, Communications Coordinator for Facilities Services at firstname.lastname@example.org .
