Ergon crews work to restore power

Crews have begun restoring power to properties in Warwick as floodwaters recede.

About 80 customers in the town had their power supply disconnected yesterday as a safety precaution and they are being progressively re-connected where it is safe to do so as the water level falls.

Crews also were able to gain access to carry out repairs to the network that enabled power to be restored to about 120 customers in the Goomburra area.

About 30 customers remain without power in Junabee and Swan Creek, although crews were able to access the area this afternoon and expect to restore power to some customers.

In Chinchilla, about 80 properties have been disconnected and up to 30 more may have to be disconnected based on the predictions for the flood peak.

At this stage, there have been no faults identified with the network in Chinchilla.

In Dalby, power has been reinstated to one of the two homes disconnected due to flooding. A small number of pumps also remain disconnected.

In Toowoomba, crews have completed repairs to the network and power has been restored to all customers who have reported individual supply faults.

Any customers who do not have supply at this stage should telephone Ergon Energy on 13 22 96.
