Planned Power Disruptions in October - Please be Prepared
The District of Summerland will be upgrading electrical switches at the Prairie Valley Substation. These porcelain switches break down over time and become brittle and will be replaced with more durable epoxy switches.
To perform this work, two 6 hour power outages will occur in Summerland (excluding Trout Creek, Front Bench and Canyon View areas) as follows:
Sunday morning, October 15, 2017 from 12:01 am - 6:00am - DONE
Sunday morning, October 22, 2017 from 12:01 am - 6:00am
Power Outage Map
The District has chosen times that are expected to cause the least disruption and are providing notice so residents can be prepared.
· Make sure you have working flashlights available, back up alarm clocks and anything else you may need.
· A full freezer should stay cold up to 1-2 days providing the door remains closed.
· Avoid having meat, poultry or fish or other perishable items in your refrigerator during these scheduled times.
Keep the doors closed as much as possible to keep food cold longer.
