Annual steam outages to begin May 8


Planning for UNL's annual steam outages has begun. The centralized steam distribution system must be shut down to conduct required maintenance of equipment, including replacing and upgrading many key components of the university's utility system.

The outages will occur on the following dates depending upon an average weekly high temperature of 60 degrees or more: City Campus only, May 8-14; and East Campus only, May 15-21.

These dates were selected due to the decreased student activity on campus. During the steam outages there will be no heating and no process steam available in those building systems served by campus steam.

To help plan for the outages, forward questions and concerns to Charlie Griesen, utility services construction coordinator, at or (402) 472-8612.
