The Iowa City landfill has been on fire since Saturday evening, and is predicted to burn for several more days. Burning tires are causing a large smoke plume.
The Johnson County Public Health department warns:
Persons in the path of the smoke plume should avoid exposure to the smoke as much as possible. Persons who have respiratory, heart or other conditions which may be aggravated by smoke and the young and elderly should shelter in place with outside sources of air shut off.
Most home air conditioning units recirculate air from the interior and should be sufficient. Businesses and other structures which draw in outside air should close outside air sources if the smoke plume is present. Avoid outdoor activities such as exercising if the smoke plume is present.
Nursing homes, day cares and other businesses which care for the elderly, very young and persons with respiratory diseases should take special care to monitor the health of clients and to minimize exposure to the smoke plume.
The Johnson County Health Department is coordinating with the University of Iowa State Hygienic Laboratory’s Air Quality Department to begin air quality monitoring.
For more current information, please check local news sources.
The eduroam wireless network is now available on the University of Iowa campus.
Devices that have been connected to UI-Wireless-WPA2 should still be able to connect to that network, but if you are connecting a new device you must use the eduroam network.
To connect a new device to eduroam:
1. Select UI-Wireless-Setup for automatic configuration
2. Your username for eduroam must be formatted like this: firstname.lastname@example.org. You will use your Iowa HawkID password, not your Healthcare password.
This fall, the UI-Wireless-WPA2 network will be retired, and only eduroam will be available. If you have accessed wireless on campus previously, ITS will send you an email with more details.
To connect a device to eduroam already configured for UI Wireless
1. Select eduroam as your wireless network.
2. Your username is email@example.com.
Your password is your Iowa HawkID password.

Why Eduroam? eduroam is a worldwide network of colleges and universities that are collaborating to provide seamless wireless network access across institutions. It will allow anyone from an eduroam participating university to access the wireless network at any other participating eduroam institution without having to worry about guest IDs or complicated configuration settings. If you configure your laptop for access at Iowa, for example, then travel to the University of Illinois, you’ll be able to access their network just as if you were here on campus.
