"Campus, I am your heater..."

January 12, 2011 at 3:43 pm

 

 Physical Plant is advising campus that the week beginning Monday, Jan. 17, it will be doing its annual run-down of its backup LP gas supply—a rite of winter that is sure to capture your attention.

The loud sucking sound you may hear, which is reminiscent of Darth Vader’s labored breathing, is the result of campus burning its backup gas supply, says Director Michael Brady. The backup supply – all 18,000 gallons of it – is refreshed annually. This year’s burn off will begin at 10 a.m. on Monday and continue for several days.
