532 people without power at Stawell after planned outage

About 532 people will be without power at Stawell until 3pm due to a planned outage on Houston Street.

Powercor’s Emma Tyner said a crew was conducting planned maintenance work on the network.

“To conduct the work, power has been disconnected from about 500 customers,” she said. 

“We thank customers for their patience as our crews conduct this work.”

In a statement the Northern Grampians Shire Council said the Stawell Sports & Aquatic Centre will be closed for the duration of the outage due to safety concerns. 

The Centre's pool will be open as long as testing determined water fell within health regulations.
