Power Outage

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.

Zip Code Updates

16 months ago I contacted Senators Hatch's office for the second time over the years to request help and intervention for our town with the Post Master regarding our Zip Code Issues.

Attached is the letter Senators Hatch's office sent to the Post Master and the reply.
