Goodwin Hall water shutdown on Tuesday morning

A domestic water shutdown is planned for Goodwin Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 6 between 8 am and 11 am to permit Physical Plant Services to replace defective water taps in the second floor custodial closet.

During the shutdown period, there will not be domestic water for flushing toilets, hand washing, safety showers, eye wash stations, lab or kitchen use, etc. No chemical mixing or use is permitted while the emergency eyewashes and showers are out of service.

Building occupants and visitors should be directed to washrooms in Beamish-Munro Hall or Water Light Hall while work is in progress.

Note: There may be discolouration or air in your water when a tap is first opened following the service interruption. This is quite normal and is an aesthetic problem only; it does not present a safety concern. Run your water for several minutes before using it and the problem should quickly remedy itself. It is best to perform this initial flushing at a tap that is not equipped with a mesh strainer in order to avoid a possible fouling of the strainer.
