During this evening's Everbridge message (Thursday, August 13), First Selectman Rudy Marconi reported that Ridgefield still has 24 meters without power and Eversource is working continually to resolve these issues. As Eversource continues their restoration work, Rudy said that there are areas in Town that may have intermittent service.
If you have no power and have not reported it to Eversource this afternoon, please do so again at: 800-286-2000. With restoration below 1%, the Town of Ridgefield is discontinuing the information hotline. Please contact the First Selectman’s office at: 203-431-2774 between 8:30am and 4:30pm if you have power restoration questions.
Rudy reminded residents that OSHA laws require that Eversource crews must stop their work if a resident approaches. Please do not interrupt crews as they continue to try to restore the remaining people without power.
There will be a press release with additional information relative to this most recent storm tomorrow.
