Annual Maintenance Shutdown
for Central Heating & Chilled Water Operations

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 usually takes place immediately after Commencement to minimize the disruption to the campus community.

Why we do an Annual Maintenance Shutdown

This short film was created with the help of a student intern during the 2013 Shutdown. It explains the importance of the Shutdown for our stakeholders and customers on campus. We hope you enjoy it.
