The leaks actually occurred before the MUSIIC equipment's last move, but not 
as severe as it is now. It has been getting worse in the last couple of months. 
I called the facilities several times too. No solution. 

Maybe we can move the MUSIIC to where it was (it's simple) or call for a global 
swapping (it may take time).
