Tree cutting causing power outages - see solution

Die George Munisipaliteit se Elektrotegniese Direktoraat het onlangs 'n aantal kragonderbrekings ervaar weens gesnyde bome wat op oorhoofse elektriese lyne val. George Munisipaliteit versoek verbruikers om die direktoraat te kontak voordat hulle beplan om 'n boom af te sny of dit deur 'n privaat kontrakteur te laat doen. Indien daar 'n moontlikheid bestaan dat 'n oorhoofse elektriese lyn geraak of beskadig kan word, sal ons amptenare nodig wees om die situasie te monitor. Indien die amptenare sien dat die situasie te gevaarlik is, sal hulle die werk moet stop en reël om die bome self af te sny.Die Direktoraat kan gekontak word by 044 801 9222 of 044 803 9222.

Ons bedank die publiek vooraf vir hul samewerking in hierdie verband.

 

The George Municipality Electrotechnical Directorate has recently experienced a number of power outages due to cut trees falling on electrical overhead lines. George Municipality urges consumers to contact the directorate before they intend to cut down a tree themselves or have it done by a private contractor. Should there be a possibility of an overhead electrical line being affected or damaged our officials would be required to monitor the situation. In the event officials find that it would be too dangerous to cut down a tree, they will have to arrange a shutdown and cut the tree themselves.The Directorate can be contacted at 044 801 9222 or 044 803 9222.

We thank the public in advance for their cooperation in this regard.
