REMINDER: UPDATED- CHILLED WATER & FIRE ALARM OUTAGE - CLSL-A - AUG 17 - 6AM TO 12PM

TO ALL IN CLSL-A:

There will be a SMOKE OUTAGE for the following spaces:  A227, A233, A243 and a CHILLED WATER OUTAGE for the following spaces:

Prashant’s entire A233 lab will have no chilled water for the duration.

JVW lab A227A and A227 including the chiller in the closet across from the north elevator will have no chilled water.

A205 has a small closet in the back with a small chilled water fan coil unit in it fed from the same chilled water line as JVW A227 and A227A labs and will be off.

These are the only areas affected. The JVW labs will hopefully be back on sooner and Josh will be notified as soon as he is back on. This is due to valves needing installed in the basement for Prashant’s line that will now also serve A151. So A233 will be down for the duration (hopefully on sooner) of the outage request.

This outage will take place on FRIDAY, AUGUST 17 from 6:00AM to 12:00PM.  You may notice a slight smoke odor while brazing is being done in these spaces.  These outages are being done to tie in chilled water to the spaces.  Further details of the outage are below:

Fire Pump Testing: CLSL-A -- MON, JULY 23

TO ALL IN CLSL-A:

The SCS Facilities & Safety team received word there will be fire pump testing done at CLSL-A on Monday, July 23.  You shouldn’t notice any impact since the alarms will not need to be activated.  Further information of the testing is below:

Testing of the fire pump in your building has been scheduled.  The fire pump testing will not require the building fire alarm system to be activated and therefore we do not anticipate disruptions of the normal building activities. However, a hose may cross a sidewalk, parking lot, etc.  Facilities and Services trades will be performing testing in the building during this time.


If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.  This information will also be posted on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.

FIRE IN HOOD - BUILDING EVACUATED - CLSL-A: UPDATED


UPDATE #2:  The small fire in the hood in CLSL-A 331 has been extinguished.  We have been given the ALL CLEAR and people can now return to the building.




UPDATE: It has been determined it is NOT a chemical spill that occurred in CLSL-A 331.  It is a small fire that is contained to the inside of a hood.  Firefighters are in the room monitoring the situation.  The building needs to remain evacuated so please do not try to enter the building until the all clear has been given by SCS.

This info can also be found on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices Blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com

POWER OUTAGE OVER THE WEEKEND - NOYES LAB

TO ALL IN NOYES LAB:

SCS was made aware of a power outage that occurred in Noyes Lab late Friday evening and was restored early Sat AM.  We are working with F & S to find out why but here is the initial report:

It appears the main cable from the Main Campus Substation and Load Center 6, in Noyes, failed.

Load Center 6 was switched to a reserve feed.

Testing and repair will be iniated on Monday morning.


We are also working with F & S to find out why nobody within SCS (including myself & Chad) was notified except for one person in the CEES group.  We will work strenuously to ensure this is repaired permanently and make sure they understand it is IMPERATIVE to notify us ASAP when something like this occurs in our facilities.

UPDATE #2:  It was found the easternmost elevator in the triple bank of elevators does have water in it so the Elevator Mechanics have shut that elevator off. It will be shut off until tomorrow to allow for it to dry out.  The other two elevators are operating normally and can be used.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.


UPDATE:  71, 68, 66, & 65 RAL have all been cleaned up from the leak.  If you see anything that still needs cleaned up, please let us know.


TO ALL IN RAL SOUTH:

The SCS Facilities & Safety Team is aware of a sprinkler pipe leak that originated from the 3rd floor and has gone down to the 2nd, 1st, & Ground floors.   The BSW’s, pipefitters, and members of the SCS F & S team are in the process of getting the leak repaired and the water cleaned up on each floor.  So far, the rooms affected include:

371 RAL and the student room next door

Today's Maintenance Tip - Okay Description vs. Excellent Description in Reaction

Today’s Maintenance Tip:  Okay Description vs. Excellent Description in Reaction



When putting a description in Reaction, it is IMPERATIVE to put as much detail in the description as possible!  The trade/shop that is sent out from F & S will know exactly where to go in the lab/office, what repair is needed, and be able to get the repair done quicker.  Here are some examples to assist you:

Okay:  There is a light bulb out that needs changed.
Excellent:  There is a fluorescent ceiling light located in the SW corner of the room that needs changed.  For hoods, there is a light bulb in the hood located in the back NE corner of the room that needs changed.  It is marked with a post it note.

Okay:  The hood sash is broken.
Excellent:  The glass on the hood sash located by the door is cracked and needs repaired.  It is marked with a post it note.

Okay:  The sink is clogged.
Excellent:  The 2nd sink to the left is clogged and not allowing anything to drain out of it.  It is marked with a post it note.

By doing this, it also cuts down on having to go back and forth in email or phone calls to know exactly what needs done.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.  I’ve also attached the maintenance checkup email. This information can always be found on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com
