2018 Shutdown Schedule (.PDF file prints best as 11x17 sheet)

Each spring, Physical Plant mechanics must perform an annual shut down of the Central Heating & Chilled Water Plant and satellite boilers for mandatory inspections and repairs to all equipment and the utility distribution infrastructure. The annual shutdown takes place immediately after the Commencement ceremony ends in order to minimize the disruption to the campus community.
