An underground power failure affected parts of North Mesa at approximately 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Officials with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities report that a single phase of three phase power failed on San Ildefonso Road between Hawk Drive and Broadview.
One-third of the customers east of Hawk Drive (not including the Del Norte and Del Sol neighborhoods) lost power.
Working through the night in frigid temperatures, DPU’s electric line crews initiated temporary repairs by back feeding electricity to restore power by 11:30 p.m. to the majority of the area.
Power was restored to the remaining customers just after midnight. Permanent repairs will continue today, Thursday Dec. 20.
Customers affected by Wednesday evening’s outage can expect a brief 5-10 minute outage once final repairs are completed and transferred back to the repaired single phase.
