Power outage in WR Tuesday

-A A +A


A small but extended power outage occurred Tuesday along La Senda Road in White Rock because of a failure on an underground line. At 10:45 a.m. about 30 residents along La Senda Road were without power. About half of these customers (15) had their power restored by 12 noon.

As DPU's electric crews continued working the issue safely to isolate and re-route power, a second problem was detected along a portion of nearby Piedra Loop which brought power down there for about 15 minutes (from about 1:55 p.m. - 2:10 p.m.). About 30 more customers were affected along Piedra Loop.

At roughly 3 p.m. Tuesday, the remaining 15 customers on La Senda had their power restored.  The failed section is scheduled to be repaired on Wednesday. The DPU thanks customers for their patience while electric crews work to resolve the outage.
