The outage is expected to last until 6 a.m. and will impact around 75 customers. During the outage, PUD crews will perform maintenance work and replace damaged distribution equipment.

The outage will impact all customers on Marcy Avenue, including those on the intersection of Marcy Avenue and Third Street to the intersection of Marcy and South Sylvia Street. In addition, customers will be impacted on:

• Fleet Street from Broadway Avenue south to the railroad crossing.

• South First Street from Broadway south to the railroad crossing.

• North River Street from Broadway south to Pioneer Ave.

All impacted customers will receive written notification and a reminder telephone message will be sent the day of the outage.

In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items. Leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored. The outage time of eight hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at any time as work is completed. Therefore, it is not safe to do electrical work or repairs during that period of time.
