  • The repaired emergency generators for the Lions/LSU Clinic and the CSRB will be load tested on Wednesday evening, June 7th. The tests include flipping the emergency riser breakers to test the reaction of the emergency transfer switches and the emergency generator response. If the generators and transfer switches operate normally, there will only be a ten second flick of the power. It will take about an hour to test each emergency generator and to move to the next one. The power will be out for only ten seconds for each building. The test for the Lions/LSU Clinic generator will start at 5:00 PM, and the CSRB at 6:00 PM.
  • The newly installed medical air and vacuum pumps at the Lions/LSU Clinic and the CSRB were tested today. Minor piping changes are required and will be completed soon.
  • The MEB medical air pump was piped into the building system today. The chilled water piping to the vacuum pump was also completed.
  • The deionized water systems in the CSRB and the MEB became operational today. Pumps are still needed to distribute the water throughout the buildings.
    • The MEB pump will be turned on and tested tomorrow.
    • The replacement pump for the CSRB is on order and has not been received at this time.
  • The new city water pumps for the Nursing/Allied Health Building have been delivered. It is possible that these new pumps can be installed without a shut down of water in the building. The feasibility of that option will be assessed tomorrow. Should a shut down of building water be needed, it will be scheduled and coordinated in advance with the Schools of Nursing and Allied Health.
  • Work continues on the repairs to the two large lecture rooms in the MEB. The wall insulation was installed in Lecture Room B and the new sheetrock was received.
