BSE Building roadway project rescheduled

(June 28, 2005)--People working in and near the Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering (BSE) Building construction site on the UTSA 1604 Campus began complaining of a heavy odor in the air at approximately 11 a.m. today.

Project Coordinator Rick Zamora from the Office of Facilities Planning and Development investigated and determined the cause of the odor was an oil-based road sealant being applied to the asphalt roadway around the new building.

The UTSA safety office has confirmed the odor is not harmful or a danger to health, only a nuisance.

Measures are being taken by the contractor to reduce the odor, and additional work will be rescheduled for a time when there are fewer people on campus.
