    Do You Have A Standby Generator?
    Please read below for important information.

    DPU would like to remind our customers that although portable and permanently installed electric generators can be very useful during storm related outages, they can also be very hazardous to DPU's linemen if improperly installed. A dangerous and potentially fatal situation can occur when a standby generator is used to energize an entire home or business without first disconnecting the wiring from utility lines. Most generators are connected to selected appliances and don't create dangerous situations, but if plugged directly into the residence's utility connection point, the electricity can flow from inside the home out into the nearby power lines. Since linemen have no way of knowing a standby generator is in use, it could create a dangerous environment for their repair work. Please verify with your generator supplier that these precautions have been put in place. Thank you!

Know What's Below

Dear Valued Customers,

Beginning July 2017, the Department of Public Utilities will begin construction on parking and road improvements at 1036 Russell Street. The project is estimated to last 3-5 months. During this time, access to portions of Cuttino and Oliver Streets will be closed. The drive thru windows and lobbies will remain open on their normal schedule. Please use the existing parking area located on Cuttino Street. We appreciate your patience as we undertake these improvements to better serve the customers of the Department of Public Utilities.

Below is an overview of the planned road closures and parking construction zone
