PULLMAN, Wash. – Power to WSU’s Environmental Health & Safety Building has been restored, said Jason Sampson, assistant director of environmental services at EHS.
EHS offices located at the corner of Grimes Way and Airport Road, experienced a power outage last week that disabled both phone and computer service. The power was restored about 5 p.m. on Friday.
The EHS office deals with campus issues involving hazardous materials, chemical waste management, universal waste management, laboratory safety, air quality, stormwater, public health, workplace safety, water quality, pest management, risk management, environmental issues, and training.
Technically, the power outage affected 16 buildings on campus. However, all of those except EHS are out buildings used for storage, barns, animal care, etc. The EHS building is the only one with offices, phones and computers.
Facilities Services worked with Avista Corp. representatives to resolve the power outage.
