Utilities Are In Hot Water, We Aren’t

Written by

Bwog just caught wind of an unfortunate email from the Public Safety VP–there is no hot water or heat. For 4-6 hours, it’ll be like New Amsterdam in olden times!

Update, 4:50 pm: It’s back! no more excuses for your stench…

To the Columbia Community at Morningside:

Please be advised that we have experienced a failure of a high-pressure steam line which effects the distribution of steam for the Morningside Campus. The emergency repair of the University’s steam system will necessitate shutting down the steam system immediately.

We have contractors on site to make the repairs. As we make the emergency repairs, there will be no heat or hot water service on the Morningside campus for the next 4-6 hours.

We will update you if there is any change.

James F. McShane
Vice President for Public Safety

    This is total bullshit. How could the entire campus have a connected heating system, including all the dorms scattered around the neighborhood, that excludes non-Columbia properties. There is obviously some kind of conspiracy here. Investigate bwog.
