Please read the statement below from your Emergency Management Coordinator and be sure to make any and all necessary precautions to be prepared.
“Residents in parts of Butler County should plan to be without power for several hours later this month.
According to West Penn Power, customers in parts of Buffalo, Clinton, and Winfield Townships will experience outages from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. the next two Saturdays, March 19 and 26. Both outages will affect the same customers.
West Penn says the outages are necessary in order to allow crews to replace a pole on a transmission line at the Silverville Substation, which is located between Tarentum and Natrona Heights.
A total of 3,700 customers will be affected including some in Allegheny County.
West Penn Power will attempt to contact affected customers by phone before the outage takes place.”
