Severed line causes power outage

-A A +A

At approximately10 a.m. Monday morning a contractor severed an underground electric line while removing a section of sidewalk, leaving businesses on the south side of Trinity from 20th to the end DP Road without power for a brief period of time.

Electric line crews with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities responded and rerouted power around the damaged section to restore power in less than 30 minutes. Permanent repairs will be scheduled in the near future.
