Thursday Steam Planet Maintenance to Cause Loud Noises

Contact: Joe Carr at (207) 581-3571ORONO — UMaine facilities staff members will conduct maintenance operations at the UMaine Steam Plant from 8 a.m.-12 noon on Thursday July 23. This activity will involve a series of controlled, but loud, releases of steam from the plant, lasting approximately 15-30 minutes each.  This is part of a process to thoroughly clean new piping so that new turbines can be installed.
