Crews this morning were working to restore power to the Lyons area, however, their work had to be discontinued when heavy rains made conditions unsafe for work to continue. As soon as conditions allow, crews will be dispatched to the area again.
Longmont Power and Communications Working Together With Lyons To Restore Power To Customers Around Lyons Today
As of this morning, Sunday, September 15th pending the weather conditions, Longmont Power and Communications (LPC) is working in conjunction with the Town of Lyons to restore power to both the Town of Lyons customers and LPC customers located around the Lyons area. We have a new map of the extended power outages. LPC_Extended_Outage20130915.0600
As of this morning, the Southmoor Park neighborhood has had power restored, as well as the area around 105 S. Sunset. We have crews dispatched to Lyons to assess accessibility/safety of the area, and are also working with the waste water treatment plant to get it operational again.
General notes about power outages:
- Longmont Power & Communications is working around-the-clock to return power to all outage areas. As we gain access to areas, we inspect the electrical equipment to make sure everything is safe. When we verify that it is, we begin working immediately to restore power. However, we have not been able to access some areas yet due to high water and unsafe conditions.
- In some cases, the area and equipment around your house may look safe or undamaged, but there could be equipment in need of repair further away that we need to fix prior to being able to restore power to your property. When this is the case, it may be a few days before service can be completely restored.
- If at any point, your service becomes unsafe, we will turn power off.
