The University is restricting water use on campus in response to what’s described as the worst drought in Tompkins County since climate records have been kept. As Cornell announced on July 29, potable water should not be used for recreational purposes or for tasks like irrigating lawns, cleaning sidewalks, or washing vehicles. “If the drought continues and we don’t reduce our overall water consumption, we may have insufficient potable water to supply the demands of campus this August,” says KyuJung Whang, vice president for infrastructure properties and planning. “For the University to maintain its mission-critical operations, we must work together as a community to decrease overall water use on campus by at least 30 percent as soon as possible.” The low level of Fall Creek, which supplies Cornell’s water, is seen in the above photo from the Cornell Chronicle.

Tuesday, 10 May 2016

The Cornell Daily Sun will cut its print publication schedule from five days a week to three starting this fall, the newspaper has announced. In stating that the paper will publish a print edition only on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, its lead editors cited both financial challenges—it has operated at a loss for the past seven years—and a desire to focus on its online presence, calling this a “pivitol moment” in the Sun’s history. The move made headlines both locally and nationally, including a story in the New York Times.
