Power Outage 2020 Update

Dear UO campus community,

We are writing to inform you and help you plan for upcoming planned power outages scheduled to take place across campus on Monday, June 1, and Tuesday, June 2.

These include:

  • Short, staggered outages during scheduled times starting at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, June 1, and lasting throughout the morning and early afternoon. Affected buildings are listed here.
  • A campus-wide shutdown at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2, will result in a brief loss of power to all buildings on campus.

This is the same project originally slated to take place during spring break, but that has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Both the impacted buildings and the outage schedule remain the same as the original project.

While we recognize that most of you are not on campus at present, it is important for you to consider how these outages might affect your equipment and your operations and to plan accordingly. For some, this may mean powering down equipment in advance of scheduled outages or taking additional steps.

If you would like assistance in planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help. The survey can be used to seek assistance in powering down and/or rebooting equipment on campus, including desktop computers.

The university does not expect major disruptions to its wired or wireless network on campus, or its core IT services such as email, Canvas, Zoom, DuckWeb, Banner, or Office 365 during this project.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the detailed timeline for these scheduled outages, which are posted on the June power outage webpage hosted by Campus Planning and Facilities Management. If you would like assistance in assessing potential impacts and planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help.

Additionally, we anticipate that on-campus operations will still be suspended at the start of June and building access will be limited. Individuals returning to campus to make preparations for the outages need to submit the appropriate access request forms.

We appreciate your flexibility and thank you for support in completing this critical utility maintenance.

Updates will be posted on the June power outage webpage and shared on Around the O.

For additional questions about the outages, please contact work control at workcontrolcenter@uoregon.edu or 541-346-2319.

Update 3/12/20

Spring break power outages postponed

The spring break power outages have been postponed. The outages were originally scheduled March 23-24 to allow for critical utility maintenance and testing.

“Because of the steps the UO has taken to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, we have made the decision to postpone the power outages,” said Mike Harwood, associate vice president of Campus Planning and Facilities Management. “This will keep staff available to be part of the university’s response to the virus.”

CPFM is working closely with the Incident Command Team and will reassess the situation in mid-April.

For questions, contact the CPFM Work Control Center at 541-346-2319 or visit the power outage website for updates.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

The Utilities and Energy department will conduct maintenance on feeder breakers that will require short duration power outages on Monday, March 23rd and Tuesday, March 24th. Most buildings on campus will experience brief duration power outages lasting approximately 10 minutes plus building restoration time. This utility maintenance is critical for the continued safe operation of the campus electrical system.

On Monday, the feeder shutdowns and planned outages will start at 8:00 am and buildings will experience a brief outage at a scheduled time based on building feeder. On Tuesday, the entire campus will move from EWEB power onto full campus power temporarily to test the backup generator system at the Central Power Station at 8:00 am. During the testing, the power to campus may be lost if a portion of the system does not perform as expected.
