Building cooling update
Due to worsening chilled water load and storage tank levels, a Stage 2 Chilled Water Curtailment is being implemented on the Stanford campus this afternoon.
This means that in addition to reducing comfort cooling in some buildings under Stage 1, the curtailment may result in temporary disruption of teaching, research and commercial operations. Temperatures in teaching, research or commercial spaces may exceed campus guidelines of 80-85 degrees for a limited period of time.
Managers should encourage precautionary measures and have discussions with employees about alternate work arrangements if needed due to the temperature in their location.
The university continues to appreciate the campus community’s patience with this curtailment and will provide further updates at emergency.stanford.edu.
