City of Dallas Stage 1 of Drought Contingency Plan

 

REPORTING STREET LIGHT OUTAGES- The City currently checks the freeways and major thoroughfares for outages on a monthly basis.  However, due to limited staff, regular patrolling of residential neighborhoods is not performed.  Therefore, it is critical that citizens report outages in their neighborhood.  ONCOR Electric Delivery is under contract with the City of Dallas to maintain lights on public streets.  To report a street light outage contact Oncor Electric Delivery at   1-888-313-4747 or    www.oncorproup.com/communitvistreetlicihts/defaultaspx

If repairs are not made within 10 working days, then notify the City by dialing 311-Ask for a �Street Light Maintenance Service Request.�  City staff will contact ONCOR, investigate the issues and start tracking the repair time. ONCOR Electric Delivery is required by contract to repair most malfunctions within 15 working days. Only repairs involving knockdown poles, cable cuts or stolen wire justify delays beyond the 15 day requirement.  Since ONCOR Electric Delivery�s crews make repairs in the daytime, a good description helps crews locate the problem on the first visit and expedite the repair.
