Big Lake Township (5/2/21)
At 8:54 a.m. Sunday, May 2, 2021, Big Lake Substation Circuit 5 recloser locked out, leaving 1,114 members in Big Lake Township and Orrock Township without power. Our crews found our overhead primary neutral wire wrapped around our overhead line in two different spots along County Rd 15, north of County Rd 35. This was likely due to our overhead lines galloping in the wind. At 9:46 a.m., our crews finished making repairs and the vast majority of our members were restored via SCADA.
