Alliance power restored

A major power outage that's darkened the city of Alliance at 10:39 this morning lasted an hour and 51 minutes.

City Manager J-D Cox says the problem was identified as being at the city's Broadwater substation … located on the south side of Alliance … and was repaired shortly before noon.

Crews re-energized the substation and service was restored by 12:30 pm.

Before the problem was determined to be at the Broadwater substation, city crews had tried unsuccessfully to restore power by re-energizing the West 10th Street substation. Efforts to re-route the system through the Cody substation…which resumed operation just this week…were dropped once the problem was found.
