Central Plant Piping Project

As the campus ages its infrastructure begins to show signs of fatigue which creates failures in various systems. Our Campus Heating Hot Water lines, which are routed from our Central Plant to the main part of the Campus, have begun to leak. Losing approximately 500 gallons of water a day. A focus of this project will be to create a new piping system to be installed in a concrete utilidor (small tunnel) which will allow for ease of access and monitoring of the Heating Hot Water system. It will be approximately 600’ lineal feet in length and begin at the Central Plant and terminate in our Commons Tunnel. In order to accomplish this, all of Lower Parking Lot E will remain off line for the entire summer to help facilitate completion prior to Fall Semester 2018.
