Mandatory maintenance work on 5000KVA transformer. These dates and times were selected to minimize impact to building occupants and were coordinated with an outside vendor. The listed buildings will experience two, momentary interruptions of power, lasting less than a few minutes each. The first event is to transfer power for temporary support. The second event is to return power to normal operations.

Occupants with sensitive research equipment should take the following precautions:
• If you have sensitive research equipment or systems you know can be impacted by power interruption and you have not connected them to uninterrupted power devices (UPS) and surge protectors, please plan to disconnect and turn off equipment for the duration of the day to avoid any damage.
• Additional information on how to power down your equipment may be found from our partners at EH&S: https://ehs.ucr.edu/laboratory/utilities.
