Funding for campus fume hood performance testing and repairs

The UW-Madison campus fume hood program addresses the maintenance and safety requirements of campus fume hoods used for general laboratory chemical safety. Standard-flow fume hoods, high-performance fume hoods, and capture hoods that are utilized for this purpose are included in the scope of the campus fume hood program.
Beginning July 1, 2009 physical plant assumed funding support of the campus fume hood program through its maintenance operation. As such, funding support for performance testing and repairs of chemical fume hoods shall be provided in those buildings that are supported by the physical plant maintenance operation only. Funding for performance testing and repairs in non-supported buildings shall be a departmental responsibility. Physical Plant shall request departmental funding support as needed in non-supported buildings.
