UAlbany's Uptown Campus, due to reduced water pressure related to a New York State Harriman Campus water project, is requiring curtailed water use. The current situation is causing limited/lower pressure on upper level floors on many campus buildings.

Immediate steps to take:

  • Academic Podium and Residential Low Rise Buildings – use basement and first floor toilets, but not second or third floor facilities.
  • Research labs – curtail water use, including cooling units, if possible.
  • Kitchens/dining – please convert to use of disposable dishware.

The University is working with NYS Office of General Service to address this issue. Updated information will be shared as it becomes available. It is hoped the system will be corrected by mid-morning, Tuesday, Sept. 12.

More detailed, instructions will be shared shortly with residence hall occupants and selected research lab staff. Academic and research issues with water pressure or water facilities should be called into the Customer Service Center at 518-442-3480. Quad residences should contact their Quad Information Center.
