Press Release dated
April 25th:

Lake Worth, FL — The City of Lake Worth Electric Utility is currently performing work on a high voltage line as part of our system hardening and reliability improvement project.
     For the safety of the crews carrying out this work the automatic customer restoration features for this circuit will be turned off temporarily. While the City does not anticipate any outages during this period, if an outage were to occur it would affect customers located west of Congress Ave. from Melaleuca Lane to 10th Ave. North [in suburban Lake Worth and areas in the Village of Palm Springs].
     To ensure that any outages are responded to rapidly, our crews will remain on standby to provide manual restoration until the automatic customer restoration feature is able to safely be turned back on.
     The work is being carried out between 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday [estimated end of project is Wednesday, May 9th].
