An underground cable termination caused Tuesday afternoon’s power outage that lasted nearly two hours and affected a portion of North Mesa.
Reported at 2:05 p.m., approximately one third of the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities’ customers were without power on San Ildefonso Road beginning at and including the Del Norte/Del Sol neighborhoods and continuing east out to Big Rock Loop. DPU’s electric line crew repaired the cable and restored electricity by 3:50 p.m. Tuesday.
The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) operates the county-owned electric, gas, water & wastewater systems under the jurisdiction of the Board of Public Utilities.
The Board meets the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. and the public is always welcome.
