ECU Cuts Off Hot Water

The cold weather outside is one thing, but now, some state workers will no longer have hot water to wash their hands with inside public facilities.

East Carolina University has to cut energy consumption by 20 percent. The solution? Shut off the hot water inside administrative and classroom buildings.

Residence halls, dining facilities and the child development doesn't fall under this new rule.

But those who work in several of the administrative buildings across campus now have to wash their hands with icy, cold water just so the state can save some cold hard cash.

Bill Bagnell says this is a permanent change for the university prompted by the general assembly.

He says this could save them roughly $120-150 thousand dollars a year.
