Chilled Water Distribution System Gets a Major Overhaul
At the October Board of Trustees meeting a project was approved to renovate the chilled water distribution system on campus. The system is comprised of a pair of 24" chilled water mains (supply and return) installed the length of campus from the Chiller Plant on the north end of campus, through the central utility corridor (under Mastodon Way), to the south end of campus, feeding chilled water for cooling to all buildings along the way.

Major details of the renovation include:
  • Work will begin during the week of November 16 and will continue for several months
  • Work will focus on the Mastodon Way area; watch for temporary fencing and bypass walkways
  • If days are unseasonably warm, buildings may be warmer than usual because of the work
  • Project has been undertaken because the current pipe system dates from 1970 and leaks nearly 14,000 gallons per day
