Floods impact power restoration

15 September 2016

The partially flooded Calder Highway last night prevented our crews from safely locating a fault causing a power outage to 8000 customers in Charlton, Wedderburn and surrounds. 

This morning, crews located the fault finding a concrete pole down in flood waters in Bridgewater on Loddon. Work is underway to restore power with access proving difficult.

We are currently working with the Bendigo Incident Control Centre to work out the best option of providing temporary generators in the area.

We thank everyone for their patience while we work to safely restore power amid the flood waters to Charlton and its surrounds.

If customers see a pole or wires down in your area please take a photo and email it to talkingelectricity@powercor.com.au
