Hammer Building Water Spray
Thursday, July 18, 2013




Two cooling towers located on the roof of the Hammer Health Sciences Center are central to the air conditioning system. One of the towers has developed a small leak, resulting in a light mist of water falling to the street level. Because of current weather conditions, repairs cannot be done this week but will be completed when the high heat conditions subside.


We ask for your patience in tolerating the slight drizzling effect you may experience as you enter and exit the buidling and we want to apologize for any inconvenience.  Please keep in mind that the mist is fresh water (NYC domestic tap water.) We want to stress that the water is in no way harmful to those below.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Facilities Service Center at 305-HELP (305-4357) and press 3.
