UPDATED: Planned Power Outage Sunday In Saint Andrews Area

Posted on Saturday, February 17, 2018 09:55 AM

Some residents in southwestern New Brunswick will be without power for part of the day tomorrow.

There's a planned power outage for Saint Andrews, Chamcook and Bocabec from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

NB Power spokesperson Marc Belliveau tells us the outage is needed to replace a ground wire at the Saint Andrews substation.

The outage was originally supposed to happen from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m., but the town says it was adjusted due to customer feedback.

A warming / reception centre will be open at the W.C. O'Neill Arena Complex on Reed Avenue during the outage, and hot drinks will be available.

Anyone who needs assistance is asked to contact (506) 529-5120.
