From Assumption Parish:
This outage scheduled for MONDAY, 03/22/2021, from 10pm to 4am will affect the same residents who were included in the planned outage on 02/24/2021. This outage is necessary to finalize necessary maintenance and repairs to the Napoleonville Substation.
The outage area (shaded red in the posted map) once again includes:
- Customers on the LA-1 side of Bayou Lafourche starting at 4470 LA-1 going north (towards Paincourtville) to between St. Peter Street and LA-403 in Paincourtville. The Family Dollar in Paincourtville on LA-1 will be the last customer affected by the outage in Paincourtville. This outage will encompass all customers on LA-401, LA-1006, LA-1007, the Bertrandville community, the Village of Napoleonville and all residential subdivisions off of Highway 1 between 4470 LA-1 and the Family Dollar in Paincourtville.
- Customers on the LA-308 side of Bayou Lafourche starting at 4967 LA-308 and will include customers going north of this point including Rue de Beauville, Greenbriar and Lucky Hit Subdivision, EXCLUDING Ideal Street. The outage also will include Dorseyville residents and ending at Gus Caballero Rd.
The Police Jury understands and appreciates the frustrations that come along with this planned outage and trusts that Entergy will perform all necessary procedures to bring the substation to proper working order. Although weather forecasts are favorable for this outage to take place, please know that should the forecast change and become unfavorable, the outage would be rescheduled.
During the outage, customers should keep their refrigerator or freezer doors closed to keep food colder longer. Also, Entergy encourages customers to consider taking the following steps to protect food items:
- Set the thermostat in your refrigerator at or below 40 °F and your freezer at its coldest setting.
- A full freezer stays colder longer. Transfer meat, poultry and fish — which spoil quickly — from your refrigerator to your freezer to fill it up.
- If your freezer isn’t full, place items close together to help food stay cold longer. You can also freeze water in zip-top plastic bags in your freezer to fill it up and help it hold its temperature. Coolers can keep food cold for many hours. Consider having a couple on hand that you can stock with purchased ice if necessary.
