Upgrade to power substation will result in brief outages on Thursday (Oct. 23)

By Jeff Stensland, 803-777-3686

An upgrade to the Pendleton Street electrical substation will require two short planned power outages on Thursday, Oct. 23 to much of the Columbia campus.

The purpose of the upgrade is to minimize future electrical outages and to more quickly restore service in the event of a circuit failure.

The work will require two 5 – 10 minutes electrical outages on Thursday: the first between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. and the second at approximately 4 p.m.

During the 8 hour period between the short outages there will be limited chilled water for campus building cooling in some buildings.
