On Tuesday at 6:30 a.m., Utilities Operations will interrupt electrical service to several locations on campus.
This will cause a momentary power interruption of 5 minutes or less for approximately 45 buildings on campus.
The power interruption is scheduled so that the City of San Marcos can transfer the university’s electrical service back to the proper equipment after last week’s outages which were due to failures in two of the city’s electrical substations that supply power to campus.
If you have questions, contact Mario Molina, Assistant Director of Utilities Operations - firstname.lastname@example.org
