Wirtz Hall work will require Friday power outage

December 2, 2010

Wirtz HallNormal power for Wirtz Hall will be shut off from 5 to 7:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 3, as crews replace a high-voltage cable that feeds that building.

A generator will supply electricity from 7:30 a.m. through the rest of Friday and into the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 4, when normal power will be restored if all operations go as planned.

Because generator power is not always reliable, there is a possibility of power interruptions Friday and Saturday.

Meanwhile, the network hub in Wirtz that services Altgeld Hall, Anderson Hall, Barsema Hall, the Engineering Building, the East Heating Plant and Gilbert Hall also will be off during the early-morning shutdown but will be restored when generator power becomes available at the estimated time of 7:30 a.m.

Call (815) 753-1741 for more information.
