The West End Reliability Project, which will result in a new substation transformer, replacing one that was struck by lightning, will continue with the following scheduled power outages:
June 22, 2016
Location: West and Southwest of Naturita (Including Slick Rock, Basin, Paradox, and Bedrock), then All meters in the West End of Montrose County
Work to be Performed: Second stage Reconfiguration of the Monogram Line
June 22, 2016
Location: Towns of Nucla and Naturita and the Dry Creek Basin area.
Work to be Performed: Place the new transformer in service.
Check back later for more details concerning duration and start times for these outages.
These repairs and upgrades will give SMPA the ability to keep power flowing during future maintenance activities and it will minimize the impact of outages by enabling better communication with the Nucla Power Plant. We thank you for your patience.
