  • NOTICE: The domestic hot and cold water for the entire MEB needs to be shut down from 5:30 PM to 12:00 AM this evening (Friday, August 4th) to replace several leaking shut-off valves. This outage only affects the domestic water in the building both hot and cold water. This means that there will be no water at any sinks, showers or toilets in the entire MEB while the water is off. Walk-in coolers will be checked to make sure that they stay on line the entire time.
