Water shutdown planned for Duncan McArthur Hall on August 10

A building water shutdown will be in effect for Duncan McArthur Hall on Thursday, August 10 between 6 pm and Midnight (approximate timing) to permit contractors to complete work associated with the installation of a new deluge sprinkler system for Auditorium B101.

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.

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.
