Spring and summer utility outages announced

This spring's planned steam outage will occur from 6 p.m. May 17 through 4 p.m. May 27. As a result, hot water will not be available on campus, except in the following locations: Ade Olson addition, all hall directors' apartments, Brewer Hall, Chancellors Hall, Crest Wellness Center, Haas Fine Arts Center (isolated areas), Hibbard Hall, Human Sciences and Services Building, McIntyre Library, Murray Hall, Nursing Building, Phillips Hall, Thomas Hall and Zorn Arena.

This summer's planned electrical outage will begin at 7 a.m. May 18 and will last for approximately eight hours. The following buildings will be affected: McIntyre Library, Old Library, Putnam Hall and Thomas Hall. McIntyre Library has generator power for emergency use. Thomas Hall has minimal emergency generator power and Putnam Hall has none. Because the central chiller that serves the lower campus chilled water distribution system is in the library, all buildings on lower campus (except Haas Fine Arts Center and Human Sciences and Services) will be without air conditioning during this outage as well.

These annually occurring utility outages allow for preventive maintenance and repairs that prevent unplanned emergency outages due to breakdowns. For more information, contact Terry Classen at or 715-836-5278.
