Mackintosh-Corry Hall water shutdown morning of Feb. 21

A water shutdown is scheduled for Mackintosh-Corry Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 21 between 5 am and 7 am to permit Physical Plant Services to test the building’s premises isolation backflow prevention devices. During the shutdown period, there will not be domestic hot or cold water available for hand washing, flushing toilets, eyewash stations, safety shower, lab or commercial kitchen use.

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.
