Influx of Holiday Visitors Suspected Cause of Eagle Lake Power Outage

Additional usage by Labor Day Weekend visitors at Eagle Lake is suspected to be the cause of an overload of the generator supplying power to Lassen Municipal Utility District customers in the area.

“Yesterday we had many holiday weekend visitors and campers and we believe that this additional electric usage or possibly a fault in a circuit caused an overload condition on the generator,” explained Assistant General Manager Pat Holley.

Circuits were turned off in Stones, Bucks Bay and Grasshopper as of about 6:30p.m., Saturday to conserve power. Power is still on at Spalding.

Holley said that the utility crews are patrolling the system again today to determine causes and explore load management options.

“We would like to make everyone aware that power may cycle on and off in the Stones, Bucks Bay, Grasshopper and Spalding for the next day or two. Until this is resolved we ask the communities to conserve power by, running campers and RV’s on battery or generator power, and only operating essential air conditioning.”

LMUD will update customers as conditions warrant.
