Power Outages on Campus

[Updates will be given here and at the IT Status web page: http://www4.uwm.edu/technology/itstatus/index.cfm?a1=details&item_id=18237]

Update: 1:30 p.m.

Electrical power has been restored to the west side of Golda Meir Library and Bolton Hall. Crews are continuing to work on restoring power to the east side of Golda Meir Library.

10 a.m.

Two separate power outages on campus this morning have disrupted electrical service to a number of buildings.

The first outage occurred shortly after 8 a.m. when a contractor struck a utility line near the power plant.  11 buildings on the east side of campus were affected.  Power to all of the buildings, except the west wing of the Golda Meir Library, was restored shortly before 9 a.m.

When crews attempted to bring electrical service on line to the library’s west wing, a short occurred knocking out power to all of the library and Bolton Hall. Contractors are being brought to campus now to help restore power to those two buildings.

Thank you for your patience while the restoration work continues.
