Annually-occurring utility outages allow for preventive maintenance and repairs that prevent unplanned emergency outages due to breakdowns.

Electrical Outage

This summer's planned electrical outage will occur on Sunday, June 7, 2015. The outage will begin at 7:00 a.m. and last for approximately 8 to 10 hours. This electrical outage will affect all of UW-Eau Claire upper campus and main campus. The campus on the north side of the river will not be affected. Existing emergency generator and UPS electrical power (where it already exists and for the loads already hooked up to those distribution panels) should be working and available.

Steam Outage

This spring's planned steam outage will occur Saturday, May 23, 2015, 6:00 p.m. through Monday, May 31, 2015, 4:00 p.m. As a result there will be no potable hot water, campus-wide, during the steam outage -- except for the following locations that have electrical or natural gas backup hot water generation equipment. Locations with back up hot water generation equipment:

  • Ade Olson Addition
  • All Residence Hall Director Apartments
  • Brewer Hall
  • Chancellors Hall
  • Crest Wellness Center
  • Davies Student Center
  • Facility Services Building (aka “Maintenance and Central Stores”)
