These are among the construction activities scheduled Jan. 14-20 at the University of Wyoming:
Chilled Water System Shutdown (UW Operations) -- UW’s chilled water system will be shut down for an extended period beginning 8 a.m. Friday, Jan. 12, through late Wednesday, Jan. 24. This is necessary for the installation of a new chiller at the Central Energy Plant. Buildings connected to the loop are: the Wyoming Technology Business Center, High Bay Research Facility, Centennial Complex, Rochelle Athletics Center, College of Law Building, Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts, Information Technology Building, Coe Library, College of Business Building, Wyoming Union, Knight Hall, Student Health, College of Education Building, Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center, Agriculture C, Anthropology Building, Petroleum Engineering, Energy Innovation Center, Earth Sciences, Geology Building, Geological Survey, Physical Sciences Building, Biological Sciences Building, Health Sciences Building (including Pharmacy) and Classroom Building. For most of the buildings, there will be no issues, as there are no cooling loads during the winter. If there are questions or concerns with this outage, call Forrest Selmer, UW Operations, at 766-2077 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Colder Weather Advisory (UW Operations) -- UW Operations asks building occupants to assist with ensuring buildings and facilities are safe and secure.

Expect heavy truck traffic both to the north and south of the construction area.
