Further to the notice below, PPS plumbers now need to perform a full domestic cold water shutdown in order to proceed with the necessary repairs. This means that there will be no domestic hot or cold water available to all areas in the facility. This shutdown will also affect the facility's chillers/cooling system, which also serves the 4th floor of Humphrey Hall.

A separate notice will be issued when water service is restored.
