Winter 2018

The next newsletter will be out in May!



PLA Members, Mayor Chammings has reached out to me and is requesting if any PLA member that is still without power, to please respond to the Paulinskill Lake Association Facebook page post with the address of the home where the power is out. No need to leave your name, or any comment other than the address. Mayor Chammings is in direct contact with JCP&L and needs this information ASAP. Thank you.

Sheriff Strada, Sussex County Sheriff and Sussex County Emergency Management Coordinator, would like to continue to keep you updated on Winter Storm Riley.

We currently have 21,000 customers without power in the County. JCP&L has deployed several assets to our county to help expedite the restoration process. They are currently assessing damage both by helicopters and utilizing drone technology. The damage is very widespread and it will take some time in certain areas to restore power. We continue to ask everyone to prepare for extended outages.

Please check with your local municipalities for information regarding warming stations in your area.

Downed Trees

Please be aware that we have received several emails regarding downed trees, and/or trees on power lines. Please note that this is outside of the PLA’s jurisdiction. We are not permitted to take any action on this. If you know of a tree that is on a power line, please call JCP&L directly 1-888-544-4877, as they will take down the information and schedule the according. We understand that frustration is building, and ask that you do not attempt to remove any tree touching power lines.
