Dunedin power outage issue resolved

A fault in a high voltage switch resulted in a power outage affecting 446 Dunedin homes between 6.30pm and 10.10pm yesterday, in the Leith Valley, Ross Creek and Mt Cargill area.

Delta operations and risk general manager John Campbell said lines crews had worked on the problem, isolated the fault and restored power by 10.10pm, and further work would be done to repair the switch.
