Power Outage Planned for WVU Evansdale Campus


Mon Power has scheduled a power outage on West Virginia University’s Evansdale campus.

The Dominion Post reports the power outage begins at 5 a.m. on Saturday will last about 10 hours.

A recent lightning strike damaged the primary distribution grid that provides power to some WVU facilities.

The power outage will also impact the Personal Rapid Transit system, so additional WVU buses will run every half hour from the Evansdale Residential Complex. Evansdale campus parking gates will also remain open.

Students residing in Lincoln and Towers residence halls will be provided with their full meal plan and additional bottled water stations will also be in place throughout the residence halls.
