Hot water distribution piping was replaced from the Central Heat Plant on Lloyd Avenue to the south end of campus. The first phase of the hot water piping, completed in 2006 and 2007) consisted of two pipes that are 14 inches in diameter, or 24 inch diameter with insulation and outer casing, buried underground. The work completed in 2006 extends from the Central Heat Plant to the front of Emery Hall. From Emery Hall to the J. Walter Wilson building was completed in 2007. In addition, chilled water piping constructed from the Sidney Frank Hall to the J Walter Wilson building and secondary hot water piping was placed on the Pembroke campus in 2007.
