BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — From Monday to Thursday, Blacksburg residents should expect increased noise levels coming from the Virginia Tech power plant as crew set up the plant’s new boiler.
Virginia Tech’s Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities says university and neighboring community members can expect the following between Monday, Aug. 10, and Thursday, Aug. 13, due to the steam venting process used in the set-up phase of the new boiler:
- Elevated noise levels in the vicinity of the power plant and in the surrounding area.
- Noise that will occur continuously throughout the day and night for approximately 48 hours during this period.
- Efforts to reduce noise levels as much as possible, including the use of a silencer.
“The Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities thanks the university community and local residents in advance for their patience and understanding,” Virginia Tech officials stated in a news release on Monday, Aug. 3.
