Reporting Power Outages and Water Emergencies

Feb. 10, 2016: Crews are responding to multiple outages in the Light and Power service area. View a map of the outage area.

TO REPORT A POWER OUTAGE, CALL 970-586-5335. 

Before calling, the Light & Power Division asks customers to please check their breaker switches. To report a non-emergency concern, such as a street light or power pole issue, please contact Joe Lockhart, Line Superintendent at 970-577-3613 or jlockhart@estes.org.

STAY AWAY FROM DOWNED LINES

If a downed power line is discovered, Utilities Director Reuben Bergsten advises citizens to immediately call 9-1-1. “Never touch a power line or anything that is in contact with the line,” he stated. Overhead power lines are not insulated and should always be considered dangerous. The Town’s trained professionals will move the line and all others should stay clear of the area.
 
Estes Park Light & Power responds immediately to power outages. Multiple outages are prioritized by the types of services affected, such as schools and hospitals, followed by the number of people affected. Light & Power cannot base its response on one individual’s medical situation. Crews will respond as soon as possible, but residents who require oxygen or other electric-powered medical equipment should have a 24-hour backup plan.  Always call 9-1-1 during a medical emergency.
