Water Main Replacement December through January 2018

The historic San Antonio College campus has been serving the San Antonio community for more than 90 years and some of the original utilities created to bring water services to our neighborhood have reached the time in their service for replacement.  One such water main line runs through the middle of the western portion of campus between the Candler Physical Education Center and the Scobee Education Center.  This work is currently underway and will reach the steps of the Scobee Education Center on November 1st.  The center will maintain ADA access throughout this work, but guests may take few extra steps from Lot 21 to reach our front terrace.  Please, work with your Challenger staff to coordinate your efforts moving in and out of the center between November 1st and December 15th.  The Powell Star Deck will be closed to the all public access on November 16th through January 2018.
