MILFORD, Pa November 4, 2014 --- Pike County Light & Power Company (PCL&P) is scheduling a power outage affecting 2,570 customers for 11:00PM Wednesday, November 12 to safely make a series of critical maintenance and electric service reliability improvements in advance of the winter season.

Those projects require the electricity to be shut off so crews can work safely.


Nearly 99% of the work is due to be completed and the customers’ service restored by 1:00AM. The remainder of the customers’ service will be returned shortly thereafter.


The service interruption will begin at Hulst Drive and run west on Route 209. It will affect: parts of the Borough of Matamoras, the Borough of Milford, and , Milford, Dingman and Westfall Townships.


PCL&P has notified the news media, public safety authorities and local government officials about these plans and is scheduling a series of automated telephone calls to alert customers about this work.

The rain date for this work is Thursday, November 13, at 11:00PM.


PCL&P regrets any inconvenience this effort may cause our customers and thanks them for their patience and their cooperation in the successful completion of this important work.
