Scheduled Power Outages Needed To Complete Geneva East Underground Cable Replacement

Posted on January 19, 2021 at 5:40 PM by Kevin Stahr

With 99% of the Geneva East Subdivision underground cable replacement project completed, the City's contractor will be scheduling temporary power outages in the near future to connect residents to the new equipment.

Utility Dynamics has installed conduit through utility easements and public right-of-way starting last summer. Electrical transformers, pedestals and street lights also have been replaced. The contractor will now be energizing and connecting homes in the coming weeks.

Scheduled power outages will last 1 to 2 hours per home, and impacted residents will receive a notification two days in advance.

The underground cable replacement should be substantially completed in January with final landscape restoration taking place this spring.

More information, including a project map, can be found on the City's construction web page.
