PLANNED ELECTRICAL OUTAGES SEPTEMBER THROUGH OCTOBER
The Electric Department is planning a number of outages for the period beginning now through the end of October. Our focus, for our Customers, continues to be the identification of key aging infrastructure that is in desperate need of replacement. Your Electric Department is acting proactively to repair and replace that equipment to avoid unplanned, costly and longer outages. Many of these outages will be small and will impact only a few homes at a time and will last only a few hours each. Likely two of these outages may require an island wide outage lasting approximately six hours each. These island wide outages will be performed late at night to minimize the inconvenience for our customers. The island wide outages are required to replace some of the highly deteriorated high voltage transmission poles along Sawmill Creek Road near Jarvis Street.
The exact timing of each outage will be announced at later dates as they are dependent on: weather, crew availability, equipment deliveries, and other infrastructure limitations including maintaining water pressure and sewage pumping. During some of these outages, customers on Cascade Creek, Wortman Loop, and part of Georgeson Loop may experience a deterioration of water pressure. As in the past, small outages involving a few residences or a few businesses will be announced through door hangers and or with direct contact with the involved parties. Larger outages will be informed through the PSA system. Thank you for your patience and consideration. For additional information please contact the Electric Department at 747-4000 or click on the PSA outage links listed below.
