Power outage May 31-June 1
Facilities Management plans a campus-wide electrical outage from 10 p.m. Friday, May 31, to 7 a.m. Saturday, June 1, 2013. UW-Parkside Director of Facilities Management Don Kolbe said the interruption is needed to perform preventative maintenance on the high voltage electrical system.
"Completing these preventive maintenance measures assures we have reliable electrical power and helps us avoid a long, unplanned outage," said Kolbe.
These planned outages have been held in past years. However, Kolbe said 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 outage are University Apartments, Pike River Suites, the Child Care Center, and Student Health and Counseling.
