Brooks Kirby, Director of Electric Services, stated that during routine maintenance, electric crews discovered an overheating problem at Delivery 3 substation located on Sanford Drive across from Catawba Meadows Park. Immediate repair is required and requires power to be turned-off during repairs. Work is planned to begin about 12:45 am tonight (Monday, January 8 / Tuesday, January 9) and take approximately one-hour. It is estimated this will affect 2,800 customers more or less from East Union Street to the Post Office, and the northwest section of town.
