Berea Municipal Utilities is nearing the completion of the new Substation project. In order to switch the newly installed transformers from 4KV to 12KV, BMU will be required to perform outages for a large portion of their service area. Some customers will regain power sooner than others. BMU will focus on the main circuits first, then will focus on the lines that branch off the main circuit. In order to help speed the process, BMU will have several contractor crews working along side their own crew to perform the voltage conversion. All outages will begin at 8:00 am. Below is a list of the dates, areas affected, and estimated total outage time for each section involved.
If you have any questions, please call the BMU office at 986-4391.
