II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project would replace two poorly performing cooling towers with new ones.
17. Project Justification: Those cooling towers are for our loop cooling system. We routinely are operating at temps above 105 degrees F. We should be maintaining 70 degree F for the cooling loop. This is affecting 90% of our campus especially during the summer. When these fail completely we will have no A/C for the facility. Units 1 thru 7 use the loop for condenser cooling year round for the DHW systems in the Units. We can not keep these systems on line during the summer because of the high condenser water supply temps. We have been forced to adjust the refrigerant charge in each of these units to attempt to keep the units operating. We are not able to maintain supply water above 120 degrees F during the summer thus there is no hot water in the units after the first wave of showers.

Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): We can not keep these systems on line during the summer because of the high condenser water supply temps. We have been forced to adjust the refrigerant charge in each of these units to attempt to keep the units operating. We are not able to maintain supply water above 120 degrees F during the summer thus there is no hot water in the units after the first wave of showers.
