The facilities plumbing shop will provide a trained fire-watch person for each affected building. When the work is complete, facilities staff will perform a walk-through of each building to flush water lines to clear air and debris that may have entered the lines.
Air handler repair, June 29 -- Humanities and Social Sciences Building
One air handler in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building will be shut down from 3 to 8 a.m., Monday, June 29 for annual maintenance. Because other air handler units will operate during the maintenance work, no change is expected in the building temperature.
