Scheduled power interruption on Saturday

(CUC) —  The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. would like to inform the general public that there will be a scheduled power interruption on the following date, time and locations:

June 16, 2018
5 a.m. to 10 a.m. 

  • • Outage Type: Sectionalized feeder outage on Feeder 7
  • • Areas affected: San Roque and As Matuis
  • • Water wells affected: All wells in As Matuis
  • • Wastewater lift stations affected: All lift stations in As Matuis and San Roque
  • • Pole replacements: 3

The purpose of the power interruption is to de-energize utility lines and allow CUC linemen to safely replace three 55 ft. concrete poles with three 45 ft. concrete poles.  The project task is part of CUC’s ongoing Hazard Mitigation Project that focuses on strengthening and hardening CUC’s power distribution system through the replacement of 787 wooden poles with concrete poles.  Of the 787 total wooden poles to be replaced with concrete poles, 643 pole replacements have been made by CUC and its contractor.

Because of the scale of work that will be performed, CUC asks travelers to take alternate routes or to exercise caution when driving through the working area.
