Heating & Cooling Plant staff


Shout out to Monte Chapman, Rob Hodel, Justin Lambert, Lloyd Chapman, Tom Vandygriff, Ramkumar Bhulai, Ron Reschke, Cody Boyd, Steve Butler, Ben Krause, Tim Oppor, Wayne Hillestad, and Carlos Spinelli.

On January 1, 2021, there was a leak in a critical piece of equipment at the Charter Street Heating & Cooling Plant. Left unattended, this leak could have caused the heating plant to trip offline. The team was able to transfer operations to the Walnut Street Heating & Cooling Plant, perform necessary repairs, and return the system to normal operation.

The teamwork and dedication of the staff involved both prevented an interruption to campus steam service and mitigated risks to people and equipment. We are very proud of their hard work during this critical situation.
