The University of Iowa Power Plant had to deal with flooding in 1993, but those levels were manageable. This past summer was not 1993. The campus steam tunnel network took on water, and uncontrolled flooding sent 21 feet of it into the plant’s basement, forcing shutdown of steam production. After just 16 weeks of massive overhaul, the plant’s whistle sounded—the facility was back in business. Ferman Milster, associate director of utilities and energy management, talks about energy-efficient changes made during the recovery, and what it took to get things up and running again.
