Electric Outage 04/10/18

Electric Outage 04 10 18
Tuesday afternoon an electric department employee went to the area of Hargadine and 1st street to do an underground locate that had been requested.  When the employee arrived in the area he noticed something wrong with the overhead electric line at that corner. 

The overhead primary wire, energized at 7200 volts, had broken and was only being held in the air by a jumper that is not designed to support the strain of the conductor (see pictures).  A crew was called and the decision was made that the safest course of action would be to de-energize the circuit and make repairs. 

The outage lasted one hour and affected approximately 190 customers.
