Contributed by Karen McGavin

As part of an overall energy conservation project, meters to measure electric usage are being installed in a number of academic and administrative buildings on Monday, March 7, and Wednesday, March 9. In order to install these meters, electricity will have to be turned off in the buildings listed below starting at 6:00 a.m. on March 7, except for Job Hall and Park Building. Power in these two buildings will be turned off on March 9 from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.

On Monday, March 7, everything will be done to have the power turned back on as quickly as possible, but we are asking for people to plan for the power being off all day.

As always, the staff from the Office of Physical Plant will be on duty during and after this interruption to ensure all systems resume their normal function. Please feel free to call 274-3225 if you have any questions or problems. Information Technology Services recommends unplugging your computers and printers to ensure their safety.
