Ellis Library will experience a water outage on Sunday, October 24, as part of the Hitt Street steam tunnel project. The building will open at 4:00 pm that day instead of noon to accommodate the outage. Ellis Library will be open on Monday as usual, but we will be under a boil advisory that day. Water during the boil advisory can be used for restrooms and washing hands, but is not to be used for drinking. Water fountains (including bottle fillers) will be available after the boil advisory is lifted on Tuesday morning, October 26 (probably after 9:00 am). The Bookmark Café menu will also be limited during the boil advisory.
You may find that the water on Tuesday has a slight cloudy or brown appearance. This is due to sediments in the pipeline, but the water is safe to drink.
