Power restored on Iris Street

-A A +A

An underground cable failure on Iris Street left 80 Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities’ residential customers without electricity Monday evening. 

The outage occurred a little after 6 p.m. and affected homes North of Iris to Canyon between Streets 4 and 9 in the Eastern Area.  DPU electric line crew isolated the failure and restored power to the majority of customers by 9:10 p.m.  The remaining customers were incrementally restored through temporary repairs between the hours of 10 p.m. and midnight after crews ran a line above ground.  

Early Tuesday morning electric linemen began on a permanent repair to the underground line.
