[ARCHIVED] Friday, September 23 Power Outage Update

Friday, Sept 23, 2022  10:00 a.m. -- Cheney Light crews are currently working to resolve conditions which are causing power irregularities (bumps) throughout the city.  Residents have reported intermittent outages since around 7:30 a.m., and crews have narrowed down the source of the problem to an underground primary electric line in the neighborhood of Sunrise and N 8th Street. Investigations are ongoing, and repairs could take a number of hours.

Residents are encouraged to be patient as repairs are underway.  If you are without power, try to keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed, and turn off appliances and lights which are not in use.  Please avoid travel in the area of Sunrise and N 8th Street to allow Cheney Light crews to make repairs.

If you are experiencing intermittent power (power 'bumps'), please do not call the Light Department each time the power flickers.  If you have had power and it suddenly goes out, you should contact the Light Department at (509) 498-9230 to be sure they are aware of the outage.
