Special to the Plaindealer
San Miguel Power Association members living and working along and near Mary’s Road, between Ridgway and Ouray, will be affected by a planned power outage Thursday, Feb. 5, from 9 a.m. to noon. Approximately 50 members will be affected by the outage. SMPA must de-energize the power lines serving the area in order to safely remove and replace an old power pole. Please be aware that water pressure during this time may be affected because Tri-County Water's pumps will also be without power.
In the event that power in the affected area is not restored before 1 p.m., members are asked to call SMPA at (970) 864-7311 or (970) 626-5549. San Miguel Power works to minimize any inconvenience to our members when performing construction and power line maintenance duties and thanks members for their patience and understanding.
