A pipeline located on Sunset Boulevard ruptured shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. For approximately four hours, water gushed out onto the street and onto the UCLA campus. Cars were submerged under the constant flow in Parking Structures 4 and 7, and water leaked into some campus buildings and sports facilities including Pauley Pavilion, Bruin Plaza, the John Wooden Center, and the J.D. Morgan Center. Approximately 20 million gallons of water spread from the ruptured pipeline onto the surrounding areas and the UCLA campus. –› Read More

A recent graduate of the UCLA Jonathan and Karin Fielding School of Public Health, Alan Chen is a recent recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Award because of his contributions to the UCLA Office of Environment, Health & Safety. For nearly a year, Alan worked with EH&S as an intern dealing with health and safety standards. He has primarily tracked rodent populations to develop measures to help prevent their spread. Alan says, “People already have enough to worry about, they shouldn’t have to think about pests and their risk to their health.” He uses GIS mapping tools and crunches numbers to visualize reports of rodents on campus. Through his work, Alan now understands factors that contribute to the expansion of rodent populations, such as beds of ivy that can harbor rodents, and where rodent bait stations yield the most efficient reduction in the rodent population. –› Read More
