To the Campus Community:
The Facilities Management Department has scheduled a campus wide electrical power outage on Wednesday, December 26th beginning at 7:00 a.m., with electrical power scheduled to be restored on or around 10:00 p.m.
Also, on Thursday, December 27th, short duration outages (1 hour or less) will take place between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. while testing of the new equipment takes place. This outage is necessary so that we can safely connect into the new campus switchgear as we continue to upgrade the campus electrical distribution system. Emergency generators in buildings that have this capability will maintain reduced lighting levels during this outage.
It is recommended that all sensitive electrical equipment in your area of responsibility be turned off prior to this outage and anyone that has refrigerators or freezers to empty them out and defrost the freezer section of these units to prevent spoiling of food and water damage from thawing ice in freezers.
Please feel free to contact the Facilities Management Department at 724-938-4410 with any other questions or concerns.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.
