Power outage planned Friday/Saturday
Facilities Management will conduct a university-wide electrical outage this Friday, May 31, to Saturday, June 1, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Preventative maintenance is needed on the university's high voltage electrical system.
"Completing these preventive maintenance measures assures we have reliable electrical power," Don Kolbe, director of Facilities Management said. "And [they help] us avoid a long, unplanned outage."
No outage was needed in 2012 after completion of an upgrade to the university's primary system equipment.Kolbe said several buildings: University Apartments, Pike River Suites, the Child Care Center, and Student Health and Counseling, are not affected by this weekend's outage.
