Splice causes power outage

Daily Staff Report

More than 2,100 homes from Eagle-Vail to Avon were without electric power for two hours Monday night after a splice on an underground cable near Battle Mountain High School failed.

Holy Cross Energy District Manager Dick Stratton said the power went off at 11p.m and was restored by 1 a.m., when power was rerouted through another line.

Stratton said crews will be replacing the failed line sometime in the next two weeks.
