Cable Replacements Were Needed for Restoration

SEATTLE Seattle City Light repair crews restored power Wednesday morning to the final 245 customers affected by the failure of splices on two underground, main stem power lines near University Bridge.

The power outage started Tuesday about 5:30 a.m. and initially affected about 2,000 customers in the U District, Ravenna and Laurelhurst. Crews isolated the damage and restored most customers within three hours.

To restore service for the remaining buildings within the general boundaries of NE Campus Drive on the north, Lake Washington on the south, Eastlake Avenue on the west and 15th Avenue NE on the east, crews replaced both cables damaged by the splice failures. Work was completed about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Seattle City Light is the 10th largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
