Loud Noises May be Heard from Central Plant

Houston, Aug. 7, 2014 — Throughout Thursday and Friday (Aug. 7-8), Victory Energy will be running and testing the new boiler located in the Central Plant. This could cause a loud release of excess steam that may be heard and seen across campus intermittently during the testing.

This will not affect steam production to the campus and there is no need for alarm or concern.

Contact Senior Project Manager Kelly Buehler with any questions related to this project at kbuehler@Central.UH.EDU or 713-743-9637. For more construction project information, visit the Facilities Planning and Construction website at
