The centralized steam distribution system must be shut down to conduct required maintenance of equipment, including replacing and upgrading key components of the university’s utility system.
Annual outages are planned for dates, typically in May, when the average weekly high temperature is 60° Fahrenheit or more. The dates also coincide with decreased student activity on campus. During an outage there will be no heating and no process steam available in building systems served by campus steam. Faculty, staff and students can assist with steam outage planning by submitting questions or concerns.
