FOD utilities outage
The operations of Ohio State University are dependent on reliable utilities. The FOD utility outage procedures ensure that appropriate actions are taken to minimize the impact of planned or unplanned utility outages or university operations. To further facilitate proactive customer service, FOD Utilities has launched a new outage calendar designed to avoid scheduling conflicts, improve communications, and add visibility to the process. The FOD utility outage procedure is available on FODNet > Utilities Operations. Here is a direct link. Significant procedural changes include:
- Requestors can preview the outage calendar and avoid days already scheduled for an outage and/or priority work.
- Outage coordinators will set up outage appointments on the outage calendar in Microsoft Outlook.

Save the date ... Thursday, June 14, at Beekman Park.
This year's goal ... ZERO WASTE. Bins will be available for recycling, composting, and real trash.
Following the success of the Zero Waste events at the stadium with 75.3% being diverted away from the landfill, this year's SummerFest hopes to rival those numbers. Watch for more information.
Look for volunteer sign-up sheets next week.
