  • There will be an emergency generator test on Tuesday, October 17th, at 5:30 PM at the Resource Center . There will be a flickering of lights, power, and elevator service between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM. This test is necessary in order for LSU to accept the contractor's work.
  • On Wednesday, October 18th from 8:00 AM until noon, the fire alarm system for the Walk to Wellness will have its annual inspection.  The contractor will be testing the audible alarms, visual alarms and the elevator recall for the two elevators along Gravier Street .  There will be no evacuation of the walkway. We are notifying all to avoid any panic or confusion.
  • The contractor has completed driving the piles in Student Lot #2.  The contractor continues to backfill the trench that holds the conduit and electrical wiring for the new lights and they are preparing to run electrical wire from each light pole to the distribution panel.
  • At the Central Utility Plant, the refurbished motor ran long enough without any problems to satisfy the contractor that it is reliable.  This allowed Entergy to shut down the second motor and VFD so that the delayed maintenance could begin. The contractor began disconnecting the VFD and is preparing to incorporate the new filter.
