UI power plant will clean pipes with steam releases

The University of Iowa will be conducting a steam release Monday, Oct. 28 from 7-11 p.m. The release is done to clean new steam piping that will serve the Health Sciences Campus.

Beginning at 7 p.m. there will be at least three releases, each lasting up to 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. Testing should be completed by 11 p.m. The metered parking in Lot 15 at the Northwest end of the Center of Disabilities and Development will be closed during this time.
