The power outages aren’t over for students living in main campus residence halls.
An e-mail sent to faculty and staff Wednesday afternoon announced that more than 20 campus buildings, including most residence halls and the student union, will be without power from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
The electricity will be shut down by the Physical Plant in order to make repairs to a campus electrical system which had a medium cable voltage failure at 1:41 a.m. last Thursday.
Representatives from the Physical Plant did not return calls requesting more information about the power outages in time for publication.
According to the e-mail, the shutdown is necessary in order to perform “hands-on cable cleaning, temporary repairs and further assessment of damage to other adjacent cables.”
The work will minimize the risk of further outages and possible damage to the failed electrical feeder, according to the e-mail. Affected buildings include those located between University and Stadium Drives.
The following buildings will be without power between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday:
Ballet and Modern Dance Building
Brown-Lupton Health Center
Brown-Lupton University Union
Ed Landreth Hall
Miller Speech and Hearing Clinic
Milton Daniel Hall
Tom Brown-Pete Wright apartments
