4/12/17: Shutdown of PLC heating systems for emergency repairs

Building Occupants,

The damaged pump which is causing a lack of heat in Prince Lucien Campbell Hall (PLC) will be repaired tomorrow, April 12th. This will require all heat in PLC to be shutoff in order to safely repair the damaged pump. Once the pump is repaired, the entire system will need to be refilled with water. The actual repair is expected to take up to four (4) hours, assuming all elements fall into place. Refilling the system will take an unknown amount of time.

Zone maintenance personnel are installing an additional fill point to expedite the process, but due to the age, size and volume of the system, we cannot calculate the exact time heat will be restored. When the system is restored, you may hear noises as trapped air works its way out of the system. If you see any water leaking, please notify customer service immediately at 346-2319.
