Due to ongoing work on the Discovery Road Domestic Water Service Improvement Project, there may be slight residual discoloration in the Wilson Hall domestic water service periodically, until the project is complete. This will not have any effect on the WH filtered drinking water system.  

Early this morning, a pipe supplying water from the Central Utility Building to Wilson Hall broke. The Fire Department and other responders performed exceptionally to diagnose the situation, contain the leak and ventilate the basement levels. There are no immediate safety risks. We are currently analyzing the impact and assessing our options for repairs and/or work-arounds. We assure everyone that drinking water and toilets are unaffected. We will have an update midday.

On Saturday October 27th the Wilson Hall East parking lot and Ground Floor East building entrance will be closed from the hours of 6:00AM until 4:00PM.  This closure is being executed by FESS-Engineering in order to perform exploratory soil borings as a part of the IERC Design.  Our apologies for the temporary inconvenience.
