The 2012 Annual Campus Steam Shutdown is scheduled for Friday May 18, 2012. This shutdown is necessary to facilitate needed repairs and maintenance on the steam system that cannot be performed during normal operations. Shutdown activities will begin at 12 AM Friday morning, 5/18 and service will be restored by approximately 2 AM Saturday morning, 5/19.
Construction and repair activities will be performed in mechanical spaces and will therefore not be visible to most staff and visitors. Facilities Operations will make every effort to maintain normal building temperatures but specific heating, including heat and hot water as well as humidification will not be available during the Steam Shutdown.Please contact the Facilities Services Center immediately at X42222 if there are any unexpected issues or concerns. Your support and assistance in helping us maintain our equipment in working order is greatly appreciated by Columbia University Facilities.
