Work Planned by SCE
Southern California Edison will be performing maintenance on the electrical system in the area. In order to perform this work safely, SCE must temporarily turn off power. This outage will allow the modernization of the grid by making needed upgrades and repairs to increase reliability. Power outages may cause some inconvenience and therefore attempts are made for outages to be isolated down to the smallest area possible and the work completed safely and quickly.

Work will start on June 6 at 8 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. Three residential customers will be affected and no commercial customers or traffic control meters will be affected. The outage boundary is Padres Trail Place west of Forest Hill.

Additional work will begin on June 7 at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. at Alta Canyada Road north of Del Oro Drive. Eight residential customers and two commercial customers will be affected.
