After speaking with JCP&L representatives both locally and corporate, JCP&L has crews out working (Saturday) on all open service tickets and that power should be restored to all of Chatham Township by late today.
JCP&L has missed previous target dates to restore power in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaia, and work schedules could be hampered by weather forecasts for scattered thunder showers on Saturday afternoon.
JCP&L crews are working today on Lafayette/Shunpike, which is now open, and then will head to Crestwood and crews are addressing the two circuit issues on Meyersville/River Road. Crews are out repairing primary wires down on Buxton and Britten, and transmission wires on Huron and other streets. Warwick received power this morning. Pine Street requires a new pole and we are being told that replacement is also coming today.
Additionally we expect the repairs to the substations to also be completed to bring our sewer system’s pumping stations back online and off generator power.
Although the indications were for power restoration last night, only approximately 50 residences got power back on.
Many thanks to our Police Chief Tom Miller for continuing to work with local And corporate JCP&L representatives, our officers for keeping us apprised of work on the ground and our DPW .
