Addressing Power Needs on the Corvallis Campus

Our electrical utility provider, PP&L, is requesting to schedule an electrical shutdown either Saturday, March 21, 2015  or Sunday, March 22, 2015,  or the following weekend, Saturday, March 28 or Sunday, March 29.  Their maintenance work will be in the 35th Street Substation, but will affect several other buildings and is expected to last 3.5 hours, from 8:30am – noon.  They are requesting a “best” date for the work to be done (either Saturday or Sunday).   As always, if these weekends present issues,  we can request another date.

Buildings affected by the outage:

  • James E. Oldfield Animal Teaching Facility
  • Wiegand Hall
  • Dairy Center and Farm House
  • Swine Center
  • Poultry Farm
  • Clark Laboratory
  • Motor Pool
  • East And West Greenhouses


Please let the Facilities Services Electrical Shop know as soon as possible if this will affect any research on campus.
