Major Emergency – Ice Storm – December 22, 2013
December 22, 2013
Halton Hills Hydro Customers
The current ice storm has hit our municipality very significantly. Halton Hills Hydro considers this a Major Emergency as we have sustained outages in many parts of our community. Our crews are working around the clock to clear trees off our lines and restore power.
However, due to the extent of damage it is not possible to estimate the restoration times. The freezing rain is a safety concern for the general public and for our restoration crews. The ice on the branches of trees is causing trees to tear down our distribution lines.
We encourage customer’s to plan for a lengthy outage.
Our main focus is restoring power to our main electricity feeders, once this has been completed we will start restoration to individual customers.
I want to thank all customers for their patience and understanding during these difficult circumstances. Our priority is to return service as quickly as possible, while ensuring the safety of our crews.
Thank you for your continued support
President and CEO
