Background and Discussion:
Computer Room A/C units on the 3rd floor of Annex 18 are dependent on a chilled water source for proper operations. If the building's chilled water system was to go offline, the Computer Room A/C units would shutdown. The servers in the computer room would over heat and shutdown. The servers on the 3rd floor are the main servers for Harris County. To increase Computer Room A/C units reliability, a second cooling source is needed. The new Computer Room A/C units will be equipped with Freon cooling units as backup. The Freon cooling units will be located on the roof of the facility.

Expected Impact:
The Computer Room A/C units will no longer be dependent a chilled water system to provide cooling the important computer servers located on the 3rd floor.

Alternative Options:
No alternates.
