A fence contractor inadvertently dug into a marked primary electric line that cause a power outage around 11 a.m. Oct. 14 near the Eagle Brook subdivision on the City's west side.
The outage impacted 432 customers in Eagle Brook and those living along South Street, Randall Road, Randall Court, Ginger Lane, Sheila Lane, and Gary Lane. More than 98% of the customers experienced a brief disruption in service as the circuit open and closed automatically within seconds.
Four customers were restored by 11:45 a.m., and the remaining three were back online by 4 p.m. as Geneva's Public Works crews had to isolate and splice the damaged section of the cable.
