UI employees urged to conserve water, energy

University of Iowa officials ask that all UI employees and residents immediately begin energy and water conservation practices today, Friday, June 13.

This includes turning off all unnecessary lights and other sources of electricity and using water only for drinking purposes. The university's electrical generation system is functioning, but it is threatened by rising water and could go down at any time.
