  • The temporary dehumidification units that have been operating at the Dental School were shut down today at the request of LSUHSC. This will allow the LSUHSC Facility Services staff to assess the capability of the new temporary chillers and the repaired building systems to maintain an acceptable humidity level in the buildings prior to instructing the contractor to remove the dehumidification equipment.
