Power Outage updates

June 13, 2019

Status of power outages in University Park - June 13

Power has been restored to ALL UP customers. Oncor says some on-and-off outages (limited in scope and time) are possible following recent repairs.
 

Please keep these safety tips in mind because of the recent severe storms: 
 

  • If you see a downed power line, leave the area and call 911. In addition to the downed line potentially being electrified, anything touching the power line, such as a tree branch, could also be electrified. Keep pets, children and others away from the area.
  • Do not attempt to remove debris and tree limbs from areas near power lines. The debris may be concealing a live wire or a downed power line.
  • Use caution when traveling on the roadways, especially in areas with heavy debris and streetlights without power.
  • If you are experiencing and emergency event, call 911 immediately. 

To report a power outage:  888.313.4747.

Debris removal

Until further notice, tree limb and other storm-related debris will be removed free-of-charge by City Sanitation crews.  Place the debris curbside for easier removal.  

Parks Department & Sanitation crews

Three Parks crews continue to work on downed trees that are blocking street and alleys.  City Sanitation crews have worked 41 hours over three days to clear tree limbs and other debris from curbside.  They are working south to north.  From Sunday to Thursday crews have picked up approximately 525,000 pounds of debris.  Crews hope to have most of the curbsides cleared by Saturday, June 15.  

Work on trees and limbs that have come in contact with power lines are Oncor's responsibility.
