Restoration Update: 5-7-2017

With the first signs of light, our crews and employees prepare for today’s restoration projects. This morning we welcome additional crews from Missouri cooperatives.

“We are optimistic of the progress we will make today,” said CEO Steve Epperson. “The additional support and clear weather has everyone in high spirits. Thank you for your continued patience.”

Thursday’s clear skies were a welcomed sight to our crews. Deep mud is still an issue throughout a large majority of our service territory; however, we are proud of the progress made by our crews. We estimate that the number of downed meters has been reduced to approximately 1,801. At this time we are unsure of how many poles have been restored, but we do know that crews were able to start addressing larger sections of downed lines.
