Planned Power Outage 11/24/06

During November, modifications are being made to the MCC cogeneration plant located on the Brighton Campus. These modifications will improve the performance and reliability of our on-campus heating and electric system. At the conclusion of these modifications, the equipment must be tested to assure its performance. The tests will involve shutting down the power system on campus several times on November 24th, from 6:00 am to 9:00 am. These shut downs will result in a complete blackout on campus – for several minutes at a time. If all goes as planned, there should be no more than three outages in this period. It is advised that you do not attempt to work on campus during this time. Network services will be down during the testing, but will be restored at the conclusion.
