Sheboygan Campus receives funding for ash tree removal

Alliant Energy has provided a $5,000 grant to the UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan County Campus to assist with the removal of dying ash trees. This was made possible by Extension Master Gardener Volunteers and their collaborative relationships within the community. The Extension Master Gardeners have also provided a memorial gift of $1,700 to help purchase replacement trees. Falling branches from dying ash trees can become a hazard to students and others on campus. Ash trees, killed by emerald ash borer, become extremely brittle and can easily break as they decline. Replacing dead ash trees will also result in a healthier ecosystem. Ash trees with little die back or still appearing healthy can be treated with insecticides to provide emerald ash borer control.

Green Bay campus reminder: Utility outage Monday, July 22, 6 a.m.

On Monday,  July 22, 2019 at 6 a.m. on the Green Bay campus, all academic buildings, path lights, and street lights will lose power for approximately 15 to 30 minutes while Wisconsin Public Service and UW-Green Bay staff changes the primary electrical service cabling at the University substation. All general electrical receptacles and lighting will lose power during this time. It is recommended that electronics be powered off prior to this outage. Electrical items that are connected to an emergency power system will maintain power once the generator starts and the transfer switch is activated. Residence Life buildings and Shorewood Golf Course will not be affected. Point of Sale devices may be affected, but please verify with Information Technology.

 

Reminder: ES to IS corridor closed

Reminder: This week, there will be some construction work beginning in the Environmental Sciences to Instructional Services concourse corridor on the Green Bay Campus. The work will require the entire portion of this corridor to be closed off to all public travel. You will be required to walk outside this week in order to get to around the construction work. Signs are posted in the Cofrin Library, Instructional Services, and Laboratory Sciences.

Parking lot repairs ahead; slow down, please

Summer campus parking lot repairs begin today, Wednesday, May 22, 2019, on the Green Bay Campus. Pylons/ropes/barricades blocking parking lot entrances are closed and require parking in an alternative parking lot. Some parking lots will have smaller work areas marked closed with pylons/ropes/barricades. If you observe work crews in the area, please reduce speed and exercise caution. Thank you for your flexibility during the construction season. Watch your e-mail for specific lot repairs.

Campus utility outages on Green Bay Campus planned for week of May 20

The Green Bay Campus will require two utility outages the week of May 20, 2019. Please read the details of each instance shown below:

  •  May 19, 2019 at 6 p.m. – May 24, 2019 at Noon:  The campus will be shutting down the steam and condensate system to all academic buildings in order to make some repairs, remove asbestos, and allow the contractor of the STEM building to make final connections to the utility lines. This means that none of the academic buildings will have hot water or building heat. If the steam can be restored sooner, an updated email will be sent.
  • May 20, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.:  All academic buildings, path lights, and street lights will lose power for approximately 15 minutes while Wisconsin Public Service and our staff change the primary electrical service cabling at our substation. All general electrical receptacles and lighting will lose power during this time. I would recommend that your electronics be powered off prior to this outage. Electrical items that are connected to an emergency power system will maintain power once the generator starts and the transfer switch is activated. Residence Life buildings and Shorewood Golf Course will not be affected.

 

 

Video: STEM Center Construction

Soon larger windows and glass will be installed, and at that point the “building envelope” of the long-awaited STEM Innovation Center will be complete. In other words, contractors are making great progress and the building should be substantially complete by August 15, 2019 with first classes starting on Sept. 4. The Brown-county-owned building is on UW-Green Bay property. We’ve got drone footage.
