Campuswide power outages are being planned during the summer breaks to allow for the installation of the new campus substation transformers. Tentative dates for the outages have changed to June 1, Aug. 2, and Aug. 9. June 7 will be used as an alternate date for June 1 in case of bad weather. These dates are all on a weekends.
This will require a total power outage lasting the entire day for all university buildings on the main campus (generally between Pine and State streets and between 10th and 16th streets, and the Havener Center, McNutt Hall, Quad Dorms, Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building, Student Recreation Center, General Services, Comp Flow Lab, and Temporary Research Facility).
Buildings fed directly by Rolla Municipal Utilities will not be affected. These include: Campus Support Facility, Bureau of Mines Buildings, Residence Halls No. 1 and 2, Thomas Jefferson Hall, South Central Regional Professional Development Center, Rock Mechanics, Miner Recreation, Student Design, Student Health Center, Custodial and Grounds, Southwestern Bell Cultural Center, 1304 North Pine, and 14th Street Building.
Laboratory equipment should be secured as necessary. Campus departments with special temporary power needs should contact Jim Packard or Mike Amick at 341-4252 as soon as possible.
