LMUD Issues Conservation Alert for All Customers

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

UPDATED: As of 1:30p.m., Wednesday, LMUD is no longer islanding with Honey Lake Power and is receiving power through PG&E’s Caribou transmission line. LMUD is lifting the conservation alert for most customers, except for those customers in the Eagle Lake are who are receiving power via the temporary generator.

At approximately 2:00am Tuesday morning, PG&E notified Lassen Municipal Utility District that, due to a wildfire threatening the Beldon Powerhouse and the Caribou Transmission Line, the line had been de-energized and LMUD would island with Honey Lake Power until it was safe to re-energize.

Lassen Municipal Utility District is urging all of its customers to conserve energy during peak usage hours, 3:00p.m., to 8:00p.m., until the system is reconnected to the Caribou Line.

• Set your air conditioner thermostat to 78 degrees.
• Use a ceiling fan or other fans to cool your home.
• Turn your water heater down to 120 degrees.
• Avoid using appliances such as your dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer until after 8pm.
• Keep windows and doors closed to prevent the loss of cool air.
• Avoid agricultural and residential water pumping between the peak hours.
