  • The new VFD and rebuilt motor were put into operation this morning and they will be allowed to run through the weekend and all next week to test the repairs and insure that they are operating properly.
    • A problem with the VFD power output to the monitoring and control system was identified and will be diagnosed and addressed. It does not affect the planned operation of the VFD and motor.
    • If the refurbished motor runs successfully for the next week, the other motor (currently serving in a standby role) will be taken out of service to allow overdue maintenance to be performed.
  • The project to improve the lighting in the Student Parking lot continues. Trenching for the electrical conduit continued at Student Lot #3 today and the contractor is still identifying and marking the locations for the new poles.
