July 31, 2014

There will be an estimated 48-hour campuswide steam outage beginning at approximately 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 8, and ending at approximately 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 10.

This steam outage will affect hot water; autoclaves/sterilizers; building heating systems; dishwashers; and any equipment, process or research activities that use central campus steam that is distributed to approximately 80 on-campus buildings.

This campuswide steam outage is necessary to complete mandated inspections of steam-generation equipment, for required repairs to the steam- generation and distribution systems, as well as to make piping modifications necessary to support ongoing construction and equipment upgrade projects for the campus.
