Chilled water curtailment ending

The current Stage 1 curtailment will end this morning. Campus buildings will return to chilled water service by this afternoon. We expect this will be the final notification for this curtailment event.

Stage 1 Cooling Curtailment

Due to multiple warmer than normal nights with high humidity and forecast high temperatures, Stanford is implementing Stage 1 Chilled Water Curtailment starting immediately.

Under Stage 1, cooling is reduced in many offices and other parts of the campus not involved in medical, research, data processing and other facilities. Temperatures in occupied spaces are allowed to exceed campus guidelines. A complete description of the impact and a list of affected buildings can be found in Land, Buildings & Real Estate’s chilled water curtailment guide.

Works is progressing on the temporary cooling tower for the chilled water system that cools many buildings on the main campus and Stanford expects to have it connected and operational on Monday. The new tower expands chilled water capacity on the campus by 35 percent.

Updates will be provided here and through the AlertSU system.
