Water shutdown planned for Watson Hall - morning of Mon Jul 17

A building water shutdown is planned for Watson Hall on Monday, July 17 between 8:30 am and 12 pm (approximate timing) to permit Physical Plant Services to replace isolation valves that have failed.

During the shutdown period, there will not be domestic water for flushing toilets, hand washing or kitchen use, etc. Please direct building occupants and visitors to washrooms in Mackintosh-Corry Hall while work is in progress. There are no fire safety implications arising out of this planned work.

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.

Questions regarding this shutdown should be directed to Fixit by phone at ext. 77301 or by email.
