Street Light Outages and Google digging

You may have noticed a number of street lights out around HVN. With Google digging up our neighborhood, a number of underground street light lines have been cut. We as neighbors need to report these outages. Google workers aren't here after dark and Duke doesn't know when lines are cut.

To report an outage online, go to this website:

To report by phone call: 800.POWERON (800.769.3766).

You will need to know the address of the street light pole or the pole number (on the pole itself). It may be helpful to report that Google is digging in the neighborhood.
