Stay Away from Flooded or Submerged Equipment

Wet weather and spring runoff are increasing water levels in many areas across our service area. Customers are seeing signs of localized flooding. Idaho Power has an immediate warning: stay away from flooded or submerged electrical equipment.

It is possible for the “green boxes” in subdivisions and elsewhere, which contain electrical equipment, to become submerged. Just like with downed power lines or damaged equipment, stay away and call Idaho Power at 1-800-488-6151; within the Treasure Valley, call 208-388-2323.

The electrical grid is designed to withstand these types of events. Outages we’ve seen have been small and localized. We’re doing our best to provide safe and reliable electric service.
