University to test steam piping Saturday, Feb. 26
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa will be blowing off steam Saturday,
February 26. But it's for a good cause: to test the steam piping that serves
the new Newton Road parking facility.
Beginning at 9 a.m., there will be at least three releases of steam, each
lasting about 30 minutes. A safety engineer will be on site to conduct noise
tests, but UI officials do not expect the noise level to exceed 85 decibels.
The testing should be completed by 1 p.m.
