Faulty transformer leads to brief outages in downtown Rockland

By Stephen Betts | Aug 20, 2019

Rockland — A faulty piece in a transformer led to three brief power outages Tuesday morning, Aug. 20, in downtown Rockland.

The transformer will be replaced today, CMP spokesperson Catharine Hartnett said.

She said the utility is upgrading transformers and this one is being upgraded because of the faulty part. The transformer was being delivered to Rockland from the company's warehouse in Augusta, she said.

A specific time for the replacement was not yet available.

The outages occurred between 9 and 10 a.m.

They will wait until a catastrophic failure that will inevitably cause frustrations for locals. There is little to no "preventative maintenance" when it comes to the City of Rockland and its infrastructure. They will say it is CMP's problem instead of insisting that it is fixed before it fails.

How about the leaning pole on the corner Elm and Union streets.
