Planned power outage on Sunday

Improvements to the local electric distribution system in Huntington, Lawrence, Cleveland, Elmo and surrounding areas will require a power outage from 6 a.m.-noon on July 17 while crews complete the work.

"We know there is no truly convenient time for an interruption of electric service," said Deb Dull, community manager for Rocky Mountain Power. "Still, this project requires a planned outage for the safety of our employees while they complete the work. Our crews do a great deal of work 'hot,' or while power is on. However, this project requires the lines be de-energized to complete the work."

Line crews will be making improvements to lines that provide service to customers from the Huntington City substation, on the south side of Highway 31 north of town.

"We know this will be an inconvenience for our customers in Huntington, Lawrence, Cleveland, Elmo and surrounding areas and appreciate their patience," Dull said.

According to Rocky Mountain Power's Customer Guarantees, customers are given at least 24 hours notice of planned outages. Letters are being mailed to all affected customers this week.
