Power Outage Scheduled Tonight/Tomorrow for Buildings, 1, 6, 7 & 21

On Friday night, 2/24/12, there will be an interruption of the power supply to Buildings 1, 6, and 7. During the Christmas Break we suffered a failure in a main cable feeding these buildings. We will be replacing this bad cable tonight to restore full electrical service. It is anticipated that this work will take 4-6 hours, starting at 10 p.m. Preliminary circuit testing will begin around 9:30 p.m. and will result in a few circuits being turned off and on for a few moments.

We suggest that electronic equipment be turned off tonight and over the weekend.

There will be a shorter small outage in the security and ETS areas in buildings 1 and 7 Saturday morning starting at 6:30 a.m. This outage is expected to last for 2-3 hours. There will be some interruption in voice and data communications in the same areas as the data closets are also affected.

Finally, there will be a 30-minute outage in Building 21 Saturday morning at approximately 9 a.m. to install a power meter.

If you have any questions, please call or email Blaine Grindle at ext. 2804 or <"">.
