As part of the Pharmacy 509 Chiller project, we need to clean the dust build-up with the duct in air handler #1 to help increase the airflow across the new cooling coils for the new chiller.  The air handler will be turned off at 5:30pm on Tuesday evening and will be shutdown until the cleaning is complete.  We need to leave off so that the dust/debris does not move down stream in the ducts.  It would be best to leave some of the doors in the labs open to help out with the exhaust floor and room pressurization.

For questions or comments on this closure, contact Project Manager John Doty at (541) 740-8302.

Concrete and Pump trucks will be parked outside the east entry of Dixon Recreation Center. The east side entrance will remain open during concrete pour however, staff members will reroute east entrance traffic through the maintenance hallway to the locker rooms.

The City of Corvallis is replacing the 4-inch water main that feeds Gilbert Hall starting mid-morning on Tuesday, July 16.  This affects the water main that feeds Weniger Hall, so Weniger will be without water for a few hours as well.  Gilbert will be without water until the tie-in of the new line and capping of the old line is complete.  This is likely to be until close of business Tuesday.  There is a slight chance the City may need to continue the work on the Gilbert line until Wednesday, but this is not highly likely.
