University to test steam piping on Tuesday, Aug. 6
The University of Iowa will be conducting a steam release on Tuesday, Aug.
6. This steam release is to clean the new steam piping that will serve Burge
and Daum Residence Halls.
Beginning at 8 a.m., there will be at least three releases of steam that
could last as long as 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.
It is anticipated that the testing should be completed by 1 p.m.
