- 4/24/13, NOTICE: MAIN HEATING LOOP REPAIR SCHEDULED AT 10 AM, THURSDAY, APRIL 25
FMP has discovered a leak and determined that the gasket on one of the fittings that connects the HVAC systems main heating loop has failed. To make this repair, heating water and all associated pumps will have to be turned off for approximately 4 to 6 hours. The buildings that will be affected are 4, 5, 6, and 30, and this impacts heating only; all other hot water should remain in service. Repair has been scheduled to begin tomorrow, Thursday, April 25 at 10 AM, so the buildings have opportunity to warm to normal temperature before turning off the pumps for the hot water. The showers in Building 5 should continue to have warm water during the repairs. This should keep everyone in the buildings as comfortable as possible until the service is restored by late Thursday afternoon. It is important that this repair be made as soon as possible to reduce the risk of a much larger leak. The warmer weather this week will help to maintain relatively comfortable indoor temperatures during the repairs. We apologize in advance for any discomfort this may cause, and advise occupants be mindful of the weather Thursday, and prepare to dress in layers as necessary.
