UW-W Boiler Testing May Create a White Cloud

Banner note: Though this photo of a massive boiler is obviously not from UW-W nor from the current day, we thought it was interesting. The photo was taken at General Electric Station E in Portland, Oregon in 1905.

(UW-W press release) As part of a maintenance project, the University Heat Plant at UW-Whitewater will be conducting a test of its boilers on April 5-6 and April 12-13. This test will require the plant to release steam outside of the building. During this time, the campus community may hear sound and notice a white cloud that is associated with the venting of steam.
