Electrical service interruption at Scott Library July 16

Due to the installation of the new 750 kW emergency generator at the Scott Library, a 40-amp breaker needs to be installed in the existing control panel, resulting in a temporary electrical shutdown on Thursday, July 16, from 6 to 7am.

This work will be performed on the emergency power system and there is no long-term impact anticipated. In the event of a power failure, this work will prevent some of the emergency lights from working properly.

The following buildings will be monitored in the event of power disruptions:

  • Scott Library
  • Curtis Lecture Halls
  • York Lanes
  • Stedman Lecture Halls
  • Founders College
  • Behavioural Science Building
  • Vanier College
  • McLaughlin College
  • Winters College
  • Tatham Hall

Questions or concerns regarding this outage can be directed to Theo Arvanitis, project coordinator, at theo@yorku.ca or 416-984-8976.
