GPA working to restore power to southern villages

Posted: Sep 11, 2018 9:05 PM +10:00 Updated:

Most of southern Guam is still without power, as GPA continues to restore a main transmission line down there. GPA spokesman Art Perez says parts of the central and northern areas have been energized, but as of this evening, he could not provide a percentage for the number of fully restored areas.

In the meantime, GPA is asking for your continued patience, as crews are working as quickly as possible. "Please, we understand your power is out, we're going to know more of these areas, pocket areas, as we bring online our communication infrastructure, and have our smart meters talk back at us where these pocket outages are at," explained agency spokesman Art Perez.

"We know where you're going to be at. As we go through the process and update the public on where our line crews are at we will know what pocket outages are out there."

So Perez says there's no need to call about your outage; however, GPA would like to know about other problems. "If lines are sparking, stay clear away. Consider all downed lines live, and energized. As we start the restoration process you may hear other things going on like transformers, take off fuse going off making a loud bang in your neighborhood. Those are the type of reports that we need coming in to our trouble desk," he stated.

The numbers to call:  475-1472, 73 or 74. In other utilities, Guam Waterworks Authority asks all customers to conserve water, especially those in Agana Heights, Sinajana and Maina.

Due to storm recovery operations water service in those areas may be interrupted.
