Keele Campus will experience full-day interruption to steam and hot water, June 8

To accommodate necessary upgrades and repairs to the campus steam system, the Central Utilities annual shutdown of the Keele Campus steam and hot water systems will take place on Saturday, June 8, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The shutdown will affect the hot water and heating steam supply to many Keele Campus buildings.

There will be no impact to hot water systems in those buildings that have installed electrical or natural gas backup hot water heaters. Every effort will be made to keep the outage as short as possible.

Buildings that have domestic hot water tanks should retain some residual heat. The following buildings, which have flash units, will not have any domestic hot water during the shutdown:

Tatham Hall Residence
Vanier College Residence
Winters College Residence
Calumet College Residence
The Pond Road Residence
Passy Garden Apartments
#340 Assiniboine Road
Atkinson Residence

Researchers should take note that sterilization equipment will have no steam supply during the shutdown. Domestic cold water will not be affected.
