NOTICE:  There will be a condenser water outage in the Medical Education Building on Thursday, June 28th from 3:30 PM until 11:30 PM.  The condenser water system provides cooling for the walk-in freezers and coolers throughout the building.  Both towers will be shut down between 3:30 PM and 6:30 PM.  One of the towers will be operating by 6:30 PM and the other will be operating by 11:30 PM.  While the coolers and freezers are without condenser water, they will not maintain their appropriate temperature.  The piping is being replaced to improve reliability.
