On June 7th beginning at about 3:00 P.M., electric customers experienced an outage, caused by a faulted underground distribution cable. Most of the customers affected were North West of 121st St S and Pacific Ave S. The crew was able to isolate the problem area and have most customers back on before 4:30 P.M. After determining which cable was faulted the crew removed the damaged cable and replaced it, resulting in full restoration of power service by 11:00 PM. Thank you for your patience as our crew worked safely and efficiently to correct the problem.
