Orlando Health will be updating sections of their utility piping system in January 2019 which will release massive jets of steam and scary noises. So they’re putting you on notice.
The schedule for their steam-venting hullaballoo is as follows:
- 9-9:30 a.m. and 11-11:30 a.m. Saturday, January 5
- 10-10:30 a.m. and 2-2:30 p.m. Sunday, January 6
- 10-10:30 a.m. and 2-2:30 p.m. Saturday, January 12
The volume of the venting is expected to peak at 150 decibels, which is similar to a jet taking off of an aircraft. So, loud. And the steam is expected to hit heights of up to 40 to 50 feet in the air.
Areas around each temporary geyser will be sectioned off from the public for their safety but please travel with care in case of projectiles which could hit roughly 1,250 feet per minute.
Orlando Health uses a steam-based utility system that was installed in 1980. The venting of the system coincides with a new system that is expected to last another 75 years.
