Outage Update: Crews Push to Restore Final Customers by Afternoon

There were approximately 40 people out of power as of 7 am Friday.

  • All Emerald People’s Utility District (EPUD) crews are out working today, along with a crew from Eugene Water & Electric Board and Blachly-Lane. All other contract crews have been released.
  • Today's work will involve setting off-road poles and running individual service lines. Lineworkers will be working in smaller 2-man crews to accomplish more throughout the district.
  • We hope to have most everyone back up by sometime this afternoon.
  • EPUD servicemen will be available throughout the weekend to deal with individual service issues. Customers are encouraged to call in if they're not restored today.
