2020 - CMLC Water Line Project - Outage Notification

Wednesday, September 16 through Thursday, September 17

As part of the CMLC water line project, we will be tying in new water piping on 9/16/20 and 9/17/20 and impacting various buildings as follows:

B62: The building will be closed to occupants on 9/16 & 9/17 per building management. Please note that domestic and industrial water will be maintained by back-feeding water to hydrant 59 in order to maintain cooling to B72; however, fire water will be down both days, 9/16/20 and 9/17/20. We will request site security to do fire watch. Hot work will not be permitted in the building. LBNL crafts will also be repairing the fire alarm system and backflow preventer during this same shutdown and no additional impacts are anticipated.

Both restrooms and emergency showers/emergency eye washes will be down this day as well. Fire water will NOT be impacted. LBNL crafts will also be repairing the backflow preventer during this same shutdown and no additional impacts are anticipated. 

B72: There will be no anticipated impacts to B72 occupants. We plan to backfeed water to B62 to keep the B72 cooling water loop live during the outage.

B73: Domestic water, Industrial water and Fire water will be down for two days, 9/16/20 and 9/17/20. Both restrooms and emergency showers/emergency eye washes will be down this day as well.

2020 - July and August Electrical Shutdowns Planned

This is advance notice that Facilities is planning two electrical shutdowns for electrical distribution maintenance scheduled in July and August.  All power, except standby generator power, will be shut down to the affected buildings listed below. Facilities is providing this early notice so that Divisions can plan their research to minimize impacts to their science.

Electrical services, devices, and equipment connected to standby generator power will remain energized during the shutdown.  Please identify critical equipment that is not connected to standby generator power, that cannot remain off for 12+ hours, and that is critical equipment requiring temporary generator power during this shutdown.  Please add temporary power needs to the links below in the following spreadsheets.

Thank you for your cooperation and we will continue regular communications and assistance with you and your team leading up to this maintenance shutdown event.  Feel free to contact your respective Facility Area Manager with any questions.
