Steam Repairs and Lab Equipment Outages

A steam leak in a utility tunnel near the chemistry building will require UW Physical Plant to turn off steam to the Daniels wing for a period of approximately one week.  Repair work begins tomorrow, Thu Aug 27.  Expected impacts in Daniels wing and seminar hall:

  1. Autoclaves will be non-functional
  2. No hot water in labs or restrooms
  3. Temperature in Daniels likely to be COLD, because there will be no steam / hot water to temper the chilled air
  4. There may be unpredictable effects on temperature and humidity
