Powering Up

Power Restored
Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable electric service to our residents and businesses. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on the our website homepage. Customers can subscribe to receive these updates via Notify Me.

[ARCHIVED] Downtown Electric Repair Needed After Water Main Break

The original item was published from December 26, 2019 4:19 PM to September 18, 2020 11:41 AM

Third And James Streets
Geneva's Public Works Department will be making underground electric system repairs Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 30-31 at the northeast corner of Third and James streets, weather permitting.

Electric infrastructure was damaged Dec. 24 following a significant water main break at the downtown intersection.

Traffic lanes are expected to remain open but there may be temporary, intermittent lane closures. Several parking spaces on both Third and James streets will be closed during construction (see map). The sidewalks on the intersection's northeast corner will be closed to pedestrians.

The project is not anticipated to cause any electric service disruptions to any nearby businesses.
