Re: Introduction of Blue Dye into Geothermal System

On Tuesday, 12/5/17, an environmentally friendly blue dye will be introduced into the campus geothermal distribution system. The purpose of injecting the dye is to identify sources of water loss within the system . Please know that the dye is NSF/ANSI 60 certified (for drinking water) and poses no health or environmental hazards. Also, the dye-containing water will not stain nor effect water properties and equipment operation.

Even though Facilities personnel will be investigating buildings and campus drainage sites, after 12/5/17 it is requested that sightings of blue water anywhere on campus be reported to John Lattanze at x2713 or to your building administrator. An immediate response to trace and identify the source will take place.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call John Lattanze.

Thank you again for your help and cooperation
