CUC Briefs – January 10, 2018

Scheduled power outage today

There will be a scheduled power interruption today, Jan. 10, 2018, from 9am to 12pm.

The purpose of the power interruption is to de-energize the primary lines to allow the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. line crew to safely replace a rotted primary power pole along Isa Drive in As Teo.

This is part of an ongoing maintenance program to strengthen and harden the integrity of the power distribution system throughout the island.

Areas to be affected include Isa Drive, from the Kagman Mobil gas station to intersection of Chalan Santa Lourdes.

No water well, no traffic light, nor wastewater lift station will be affected.

Because of the scale of work that will be performed, CUC asks travelers to take alternate routes or to exercise caution when driving through the affected areas.

Water outage on tomorrow

There will be a scheduled water service interruption starting from 8pm tomorrow, Jan. 11, to 8am on Friday, Jan. 12, in several areas on Saipan that that the Commonwealth Utilities Corp.’s contractor can install a new 18-inch gate valve. At the same time, CUC Water Division Operations personnel will be cutting and capping an old 6-inch ductile iron pipe at the Chalan Msgr. Martinez and As Perdido intersection near the Guandong Hardware.

The water outage will affect the As Lito, As Perdido, Fina Sisu, Koblerville, San Antonio, Afetnas, Chalan Piao, Chaim Kanoa, Susupe, and Oleai areas.

The scope of work is to abandon an old waterline that is prone to leaks to help reduce CUC’s non-revenue water percentage.

There may be a possibility that some customers are still connected to the old line and may not receive water after water services are restored, so CUC is asking affected customers to contact the CUC Call Center immediately.

Due to the closure of the southbound lane and for the safety of the men and women working at the site, motorists are advised to proceed with caution and take alternative routes when traveling by the area.

For more information, contact the CUC Customer Call Center (664-4282) or monitor its Facebook page for the latest updates. (CUC)
