Lack of Locker Room Hot Water. According to GSA/Building Management: The Fitness Center was taken off its dedicated hot-water system and put on the "House hot-water system" in order to facilitate repairs to the dedicated system.  Parts are expected within the next week at which time the fitness center will go back to its dedicated system. GSA also plans to raise the temperature of the "House-System" slightly to attempt to further alleviate this issue.  In addition, GSA will monitor the temperature of the water daily, early in the morning, until the repairs to the Fitness Center Hot-Water system have been completed.
