High Temperature Water (HTW) Shutdown

Work is nearing completion on two major infrastructure upgrade projects that impact the high temperature water (HTW) system across the campus.  These projects are replacing old, failing pipe to the buildings listed below in Zones 1 and 2 with new durable pipe. To facilitate the completion of these projects and perform preventative maintenance on the HTW facilities, an extended shutdown of the HTW system is required.

While this extended shutdown may result in some inconvenience, the work being completed will enable more reliable HTW service in the future and reduce the number of emergency shutdowns that the campus has experienced in recent years. This work has been scheduled for the July-August period when fewer people are on campus and there is a reduced need for HTW service.

In the affected areas, hot water will not be available for

  • Rest rooms and showers
  • Custodial sinks
  • Laboratories
  • Humidification in certain ventilation systems
  • Swimming pool heating
  • Food service outside of Olpin Union 

Listed below are the dates and times for the shutdown, affected areas, and backup services being provided for critical areas of campus. If you have any questions, concerns, or need additional information regarding this shutdown, please contact the project manager or Facility Operations Dispatch.

Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated as we build a better U.
