Planning for the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’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 outage is planned for City Campus only from May 10-16. The East Campus outage is May 31 through June 6. Both outages depend upon an average weekly high temperature of 60 degrees or more.
Outage dates are scheduled based on decreased student activity on campus. During the outages, there will be no heating and no process steam available in building systems served by campus steam.
For questions or concerns regarding processes requiring steam, contact Charlie Griesen, utility project manager for Facilities Management and Planning, by April 17 at 402-472-8612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
