Power interruption on March 17 and 18
There will be a scheduled power interruption on Saturday, March 17, and Sunday March 18, from 6am to 11am, on Saipan.

The pole replacement task is a sub-project of the CUC Hazard Mitigation Project aimed at strengthening and hardening the power grid through the replacement of 787 wooden poles with concrete ones.
Since the start of the project in September 2015, 345 of 787 wooden poles have been replaced.
No water wells or wastewater lifts station will be affected.
