Emergency Water Outage – Fine Arts Building

There is a line break on the domestic water service to the Fine Arts Building that is causing water to run under the building and flood the utility tunnel.  Therefore, we will be shutting the water off to the entire building very shortly (as soon a replacement valve arrives on site).  This water outage should last for about 20 minutes, and replacement of this ruptured valve will hopefully solve the problem.  All restrooms in the building will be temporarily unavailable during this outage.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but this was an unforeseen situation.  Please let your faculty and staff members know as necessary.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

******UPDATE*****

The valve replacement did not correct the problem.  We are going to need access to the main water line serving the Fine Arts Building to make the repair.  We are shutting the water off to the entire building around 5:30 this evening, but water service will be restored for Friday classes.  All restrooms in the building will be closed during this outage, but restrooms in adjacent buildings (i.e. Architecture Building and the Maverick Activities Center) will be available for use.  No other campus utilities have been jeopardized.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.  Please let your faculty and staff members know as necessary.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jeff Johnson, Facilities Management Director, at (817) 798-8456.

Temporary Air Conditioning Outage – University Center: Career Development Center, VP for Student Affairs’ Suite, and Student Leadership Center (east end of building)

Due to a manufacturer’s recall on the air handlers serving the Career Development Center, the VP for Student Affairs’ Suite, and the Student Leadership Center at the east end of the University Center, a temporary air conditioning outage will be required to make repairs.  This outage will affect only the air conditioning in the above listed locations, but we wanted to make other building occupants aware that workmen may be seen in other areas of the building so no one would be alarmed.  The Office of Facilities Management plans to begin this outage on Monday night, October 16th, at 6:00 p.m. with air conditioning being restored no later than 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning, October 17th.  If the manufacturer is unable to complete the repairs in one night, another outage will be required on Tuesday night, October 17th, at 6:00 p.m. with air conditioning being restored no later than 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, October 18th.

Please let your fellow staff members know as necessary.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, concerns, or special requirements during this time frame, please contact either Scott Willis, HVAC Supervisor, at Ext. 2-3337 or Don Lange, OFM Director, at Ext. 2-2096.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your cooperation. If there are any conflicts, questions, or concerns with this water outage, please let us know as soon as possible.
