Big Water, Church Wells to Paria - The power will be out tonight 08/29/2013 beginning at midnight Utah time, 11:00 p.m. AZ time.
The power outage is necessary to replace a relay in the Buckskin substation that was damaged during last week's power outage. Had to order the part from Pennsylvania. Last week's outage was caused by a microburst that broke a cross-arm on a power pole & than caused a fire because of arcing. This mishap lead to the failure of the relay in the substation that is being replaced tonight. Power was restored last week by by-passing the damaged relay.
