BEACON FALLS – Power restoration for the over 1,000 Connecticut Light and Power Customers was put on hold today at crews previously working in town were redirected to Bethany and Seymour, according to First Selectman Susan Cable.
She said she was upset when the crews left this morning and called the governor to ask to get the crews back.
Beacon Falls still lacks power on Rimmon Hill, including the high school, the sewer plant, which is currently running on a generator, Burton Road, Rice Lane, Terese Road, and Beacon Valley Road, Cable said.
According to the town’s website, CL&P crews returned to town at 3:45 p.m. today and were working in the Rimmon Hill area, and Cable has contacted CL&P regarding additional crews, which are needed for Beacon Valley Road.
While residents wait for power, the town’s shelter at the Senior Center is still open, as well as other warming stations, including Town Hall. Residents without power can shower at the high school until 7 p.m. tonight, Cable said.
Garbage pickup is still scheduled for Friday, according to the town’s website. Brush can be left curbside for pickup by the town crew or may be brought to the town garage between 7 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
