ELECTRICAL POWER INTERRUPTION (All Levels) – Williams Science Hall (WSH)

On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, there will be a momentary interruption (shut off) of normal electrical power to the main electrical switchboard that serves all levels of the Williams Science Hall (WSH).  This will cause a power outage to all receptacle outlets, computers, lighting, air handling units, supply fans, exhaust fans, fume hoods, motors, etc. throughout each building.  The power outage should be as short as a “blink”.  If possible, it is recommended that computers and other pieces of sensitive electrical equipment be shut down prior to the scheduled electrical interruption as a safety precaution.

This shut off is required to allow for proper testing and commissioning of new electrical switchgear controls at the Central Utilities Plant (CUP).

Interruption Schedule:

Commence Time:                  Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 6:00 a.m. 

Completion/End Time:         Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 6:15 a.m.                                                                  (Approximately)
