Campus Wide Steam Outage Update: Project Complete

submitted by abounass@augsburg.edu

Facilities has been working with Metropolitan Mechanical (MMC) to repair the steam leaks on Riverside Avenue. A steam outage originally planned to allow for repairs on October 13 needed to be moved up because the leak was worse than expected. The outage instead began at 2:30 p.m. on October 12. Repair work continued through the night with the intent of restoring steam service the morning of October 13.

The project is complete and the steam is now back on at full pressure! All hot water should be restored in your affected areas. If you have any issues with hot water please put in a Facilities Request right away and we will get it addressed. Thank you again for your patience with this project!
