Outage Center

October 3, 2018: Outage Update: LMUD customers who are currently being served by the emergency electric generator will experience a power outage on Friday, October 5th beginning at 8:00am and ending at approximately 6:00pm. The outage is necessary in order for LMUD to switch service from the generator to the underground line that will serve the Eagle Lake customers. Affected areas include, Spalding, Bucks Bay, Grasshopper and Stones. The outage is contingent on weather and could be delayed due to inclement conditions.

September 4, 2018: Outage Update: As of 5:45pm, power has been restored to all of our Eagle Lake customers. If you live in the Eagle Lake area and are still without power, please call, 530-257-4174. We are asking all affected customers to please turn off all non-essential electric devices. Please help us keep our connection to the generator steady by only using what is absolutely necessary. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

September 4, 2018: Saturday, September 1, at approximately 6:30pm, the emergency generator that is providing power to our Eagle Lake customers was not able to accommodate the increased holiday load causing it go offline. This situation caused outages to most of our Eagle Lake customers. Crews worked throughout the weekend to try and bring the generator back online. As of Tuesday, September 4, power has been restored to the majority of Spalding residents and to the community of Stones. Bucks Bay remains offline. Crews will assess the situation this afternoon when load is expected to return to pre-holiday levels. We will post more information as it becomes available.

September 2, 2018: LMUD crews are in the process of restoring power to the community of Stones. This requires diverting power from the community of Spalding. Once this process is finished, we will attempt to bring as many Spalding customers back online as possible. Unfortunately, due to the limited capacity of the emergency generator, we will have to take Bucks Bay offline. Please practice extreme conservation! We understand that this is not an ideal situation, however, we are operating as best we can given the circumstances. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

September 2, 2018: Saturday, September 1st, LMUD customers in the Eagle Lake area lost power. Crews responded to find that the large-scale generator that is temporarily supplying power, was offline. Line patrols are being conducted today in order to identify the source of the line fault. It is possible that the additional electric demand from holiday visitors overloaded the circuit. We are asking that recreational vehicles and campers in the area’s campgrounds stay on battery or generator power. All other customers are asked to practice energy conservation when possible. Customers in the Spalding, Stones, Bucks Bay and Grasshopper areas will experience sporadic outages throughout the day and possibly into tomorrow. We will post more information as it becomes available.

August 30, 2018: Maintenance has been completed on the generator serving our Eagle Lake area customers. Power has been restored to all who where affected.

August 24, 2018: Thursday, August 30, beginning at approximately 10:00am and ending at approximately 4:00pm, LMUD Eagle Lake area customers that are being served by generator power, will experience a planned power outage.

The outage has been scheduled so that routine and necessary maintenance can be performed on the generator that is serving those communities affected by the Whaleback fire.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
