Weekly Bulletin

The Safe Drinking Water Act passed in 1996 requires that public drinking water suppliers send out annual Consumer Confidence Reports outlining the quality of drinking water provided to consumers. This report will detail where your drinking water comes from, what it contains, and the risks our water testing and treatment are designed to protect. The 2003 Water Quality Report was mailed to all billed water customers by July 1, 2004. It is also available on the Town of Amherst website (www.town.amherst.ma.us) or copies may be requested by calling the Amherst Department of Public Works at 256-4050.

As of this September, public classrooms in ALL academic buildings are part of the Network Registration ("NetReg") System. To access the Internet and other network services from these classrooms, instructors will have to fill out a simple online registration form. Registration can happen in any NetReg-enabled classroom. Just plug your network cable into the blue jack with a gray faceplate (usually located near the podium). Open an Internet browser and, when you attempt to connect to a Web page, you will be directed to the registration form. You''ll need your OIT Account information to complete registration.

We strongly recommend that all instructors register their computers in
advance of their first class. If you need assistance testing or registering
your computer, bring it to A118 LGRC.
