Chilled Water

OSU has two chilled water plants: (1) the Central Chilled Water Plant, located at the intersection of Hall of Fame Avenue and Washington Street in the Central Plant, and (2) the West Chilled Water Plant, located at the intersection of McElroy Road and Willis Street. The combined chiller capacity of the two plants is 29,000 tons circulating approximately two million gallons of water through 20 miles of chilled water piping and supplying 82 Campus buildings with chilled water for air conditioning, dehumidification, and process cooling. Every fifty (50) minutes the West Chilled Water Plant pumps out enough chilled water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
