UI power plant will clean pipes with steam releases
The University of Iowa will be conducting a steam release on Tuesday, Nov.
12 from 9 a.m. until noon at the south end of the Westlawn building. The release
is done to clean the new steam piping that will serve the Health Sciences
campus. Beginning at 9 a.m. there will be at least three releases of steam
that could last up to 30 minutes. An engineer will be on site to conduct noise
tests, but UI officials do not expect the noise level to exceed 85 decibels.
The nursing building circle and parking will be closed during this time.
