Electrical outages

Sporadic electrical outages
possible on campus Saturday

University News Service

The Texas State Facilities Department is working with the City of San Marcos Electrical Utilities preparing to re-route the Hilltop Electrical Service Feed to the Co-Generation Plant.

On Saturday from 6 a.m. until about 11 a.m., there will be very short periods (a few seconds at a time) of electrical service outages to multiple buildings on campus. In the event of heavy rain, or other unforeseen delays, the work and outages will be rescheduled for Sunday starting at 6 a.m.

The following buildings may be affected by these brief power outages:

Arnold Hall
Academic Services Building., North and South
Burleson Hall
Butler Hall
College Inn
Evans Auditorium
Falls Hall
Health Professions Building
Hornsby Hall, Math/Computer Science
Matthews Street Garage
Mitte Complex
San Marcos Hall
Smith Hall
Supple Science
Theatre Center

Buildings and/or building systems that require generators have been identified, and generators will be placed into use in advance of the outage. It is recommended that those individuals, or departments with sensitive electronic systems shut them down in an orderly manner before the event, then restart once stability returns.

The Facilities Department apologizes for any inconveniences these electrical outages may cause. A detailed plan by the hour is currently assembled and is being reviewed by the Facilities Department during the weekly coordination meetings being held at the Physical Plant Building every Thursday until the electrical work is completed.

Please do not hesitate to contact Chuck Teichner at 245-2202, or Guillermo Nieri at 245-6198, with any questions, or concerns, regarding these outages.

Facilities Department appreciates your feedback and will make every effort to accommodate your concerns. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these necessary electrical operations.
