Power Turned Off in Waycroft-Woodlawn for Tree Maintenance

Dominion is shutting off the power to 82 homes in the Waycroft-Woodlawn neighborhood today so that a contractor can perform tree maintenance near power lines.

The maintenance comes just under three weeks after a strong storm felled trees and knocked out power to homes in the area, near Virginia Hospital Center.

The power will be shut off from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Dominion said in a letter to affected residents. The work is being performed “near the primary line that feeds [the] neighborhood,” according to the letter.

    Hope everyone has gas heat…

      Unless you’re using hot water radiators with that gas, you’ll need electricity to run a fan in a force air system.

        Hope everyone has a fireplace or wood stove.

        I think you need electricity for the water pump too, unless you have some solar panels and batteries.

    I hope everyone was given proper notice. This happened in our neighborhood 2 summers ago for 2 days in a row and we were given notice from Dominion via a letter stuck on our day on the DAY of. Lucily it was a cool summer, but I had an infant and the in-home daycare on our street was left scrambling.
