Campus Steam Outage Information
Annual Campus Steam Outage
Each year Facilities Management and Safety will use an annual steam outage to allow for repairs to the steam system on campus. This outage will shut down the steam across the entire campus so that technicians can safely repair the steam system. We will announce the dates for the steam outages in advanced time to allow for the campus to prepare and be aware of the outage.
