Brief Outage Set for Sunday to Repair Power Lines

Power will be cut to four campus buildings on Sunday, Aug. 8, while  workers finish repairing electric lines cut in Monday morning’s construction accident.

The following buildings will be without power briefly:

  • Natural Science and Engineering Research Lab (NSERL).
  • Activity Center.
  • Eugene McDermott Library.
  • Bookstore.

All electronic equipment and computers in these buildings should be shut down before 6 a.m. Sunday to minimize  chances of damage.

The rest of campus is not expected to be adversely affected.

Classes were dismissed at 3 p.m. Monday after a construction accident  cut the power line to the central energy plant.

Some University facilities have been operating on temporary power sources since the incident.
