 TO:  Campus Community
 FROM:  Jorge Abud, Assistant Vice President of Facilities
 SUBJECT:  Ongoing Intramurals Fields Testing


From May 16-18, the University will conduct testing of the use of lawnmowers and leaf blowers as used for grounds and maintenance activities. The testing will take place on the intramural fields, and will evaluate the amount of dust generated and whether this dust could present any health risk.

This is part of the ongoing effort by AU to fully understand the impact on operations resulting from the Army's use of campus during World War I.

We will continue to keep you informed as other testing is scheduled. Please call the AU Information Line at 202-885-2020, or access our website at if you have questions about the Army Corps of Engineers Project at AU.
