Vandals Cause Power Outages Near Willow Lake



Bookmark and Share

NorthWestern Energy is encouraging customers in the Willow Lake, S.D., area to keep an eye out for suspicious activity near power lines or substations. Several recent outages that impacted Willow Lake, Henry and surrounding communities were caused by someone shooting at NorthWestern Energy’s electric equipment and infrastructure.

“While making repairs related to the outages, NorthWestern Energy linemen observed damage consistent with bullet or pellet damage,” said Mike Sydow – South Dakota and Nebraska General Manager of Operations. “This type of vandalism is dangerous to the general public and to the person causing the damage. We encourage anyone who observes suspicious behavior or has information concerning these or other incidents to please contact local authorities.”
                      
The company also reminds people to stay clear of power lines that look damaged or have fallen and to call (800) 245-6977.
