If you haven’t had a chance to make Ramen or hot chocolate from the near boiling water in the school bathrooms yet, you’ve most likely near scolded yourself washing your hands with it.

Due to the mystery surrounding the water temperature, administration has been working hard to get to the bottom of the problem. It is believed that neither a Washington staff member nor student is to blame for adjusting the water boiler temperatures. Both janitorial knowledge and an understanding of the whereabouts of the boilers is necessary to adjust them which minimizes the amount of people that could be responsible.

The colder water at the top of the boilers must run through the pipes first before warmer water can rotate through, resulting in cooler water temperatures in the morning and the close to boiling levels as the day progresses.

Recently, the water temperatures have been tolerable and administration says that the problem is hopefully close to eradication. Until the hand washing obstacle is completely dissolved however, check out this podcast conducted by the Surveyor staff to see what refreshments can be made in the bathrooms.
