Northwest Rural PPD To Hold Mirage Flats Outage Wed For Storm Repairs

HAY SPRINGS – Residents of the Mirage Flats area south of Hay Springs will endure an aftermath of Saturday’s storms tomorrow as Northwest Rural Public Power District shuts down the substation serving the area in order to repair 2 utility poles destroyed by high winds.

Northwest Rural spokesman Les Tlustos says the two poles are on the transmission line serving the Mirage Flats substation, so the power must be turned off to safely replace them. The outage is scheduled to run from from 10-4:00, but Tlustos is optimistic the project won’t take that long.
