Hey Eagle Point!!!
Weekend's Power Outage
The HOA called Alabama Power about the outages this weekend...below is what was said: Power supply is fed into a particular section. This section could be your entire neighborhood or part of your street. Power lines are fed in or have 3 different phases of lines. Your house or street power depends on the part of the line you are fed off of. (So your neighbor or the street over could have power because they are on a different line) During times of mass storms and outages...like this past weekend...the power company receives a large amount of calls and power outages by phone and internet. If there is a report of an outage or a line being down the power company has to check each one. This is a huge undertaking so they do not give or estimate the time that power will be turned back on. The power crews have to wait for the severe weather to subside before being able to investigate the outage. Once the outage is investigated then the correct crews for that particular outage are sent out. In any type of outage, engineers always see if they can redirect the power source to get the power back on. Once the problem is narrowed down and if they cannot redirect the outage for that particular problem, those people will remain without power until they can get the problem fixed. Sometimes it is not a quick solve and with a mass outage it sometimes takes longer. However, the Alabama Power Rep said please call the OUTAGE REPORT LINE for updates at 1-800-888-2726! Please call the HOA office if you have a concern!!! The HOA is busy working to make sure that all Eagle Point residents and homeowners are taken care of.
Please do not mess with the irrigation systems by in Eagle Point. Again someone has turned off the irrigation systems on both the Highway 119 and 280 entrances. Landscaping in Eagle Point is well maintained by NatureScape, when the water is turned off, then the flowers and shrubs are not getting the appropriate water. Turning the water off could cost you and residents $$$ for replacements! Please let the HOA office know if you see anyone suspicious at these entrances. A Shelby County Sheriff's Deputy is aware of the situation and is looking into the problem.
