UI Oakdale power plant to clean pipes with steam releases

The Oakdale power plant will conduct a series of steam releases from about 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18 at the University of Iowa's Multi-Tenant Facility. These releases are intended to clean a new steam line that was installed this summer and fall. Steam will be emitted through a muffler and will produce a large steam plume and whistle sound similar to a steam locomotive.
