Dear Campus Community,
Every year, the Facilities Services maintenance team completes the necessary maintenance on our steam system, to keep things working properly. This is no small undertaking. In fact, it requires shutting down the steam throughout the entire campus and completing maintenance services at the plant, throughout the steam tunnels, and buildings.
In an effort to minimize the impact that this shutdown will have on our campus community, we have scheduled the steam shutdown for mid-June to coincide with both summer break and with other major maintenance projects on campus. It is our hope that the benefits of this necessary maintenance will be well worth the inconvenience.
The shutdown will begin June 18th at 6PM, and just four hours later, our maintenance team will start working diligently to complete this process. We hope to start bringing the system back up with full operation anticipated for 8AM on the 26th. Your contact for questions and concerns regarding this shutdown is Les Walton (541) 737-4395. You can also contact the Facilities Services Work Coordination Center (541) 737-2969.
We thank you for your support and patience during this annual event.
