UPDATE: ELECTRICAL POWER INTERRUPTION (All Levels) – ADC & CON BUILDINGS

Time change – Friday, January 19, 2018, the normal electrical power will be interrupted for several minutes.  The power outage could be as short as a “blink” or last up to 5 minutes.

The following buildings will be affected:

  • Administration Center, at 426 South 40th Street – starting at 5:30 am.
  • College of Nursing, at 4111 Dewey Avenue – starting at 5:40 am.

This interruption is necessary to complete some maintenance work on the switchgear in the East Utility Plant.  There will be another notice when we are ready for another interruption to the electrical power to put it back to normal status.

The power outage will affect receptacle outlets, computers, lighting, air handling units, supply fans, exhaust fans, fume hoods, motors, etc. throughout each building.  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.

If you have any questions, please contact Neal Buxcel at 402-559-1829 or Matt Monaghan at 402-559-7188.  Since it is vital that everyone working in the affected areas be advised of this, I ask that you mention this electrical power interruption to your colleagues.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
