May 31-June 1: Overnight power outage planned
The UW-Parkside Facilities Management department plans a campus-wide electrical outage from 10 p.m. Friday, May 31, to 7 a.m. Saturday, June 1, 2013. The downtime is needed to perform preventative maintenance on the university's high voltage electrical system.
"Completing these preventive maintenance measures assures we have reliable electrical power and helps us avoid a long, unplanned outage," said Director of Facilities Management Don Kolbe.
Kolbe noted such planned outages have been held in past years although one was not needed in 2012 due to the completion of a project upgrading the university's primary system equipment.Buildings not affected by the May 31-June 1 outage are: University Apartments, Pike River Suites, the Child Care Center, and Student Health and Counseling.
