A water line rupture on DP Road Monday resulted in a power outage affecting 12 businesses there. Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities’ Gas, Water and Sewer crews were called out Monday to perform an emergency repair of a water line break, which occurred due to aging pipes.
During the excavation, a primary electric wire was accidentally contacted and damaged, resulting in partial power to approximately 12 DP Road businesses east of 234 DP Road including, the Los Alamos Monitor.
In order for DPU’s electric linemen to safely make repairs, power lines east of 234 DP road were de-energized. Initial reports of the damage were made at 12 noon. DPU’s electric crews de-energized the lines at 1 p.m. and restored power at 4 p.m. after all repairs were made.
