The City of Manhattan says as rolling blackouts continue, the outages will impact traffic signals.
Drivers who approach an intersection that is totally dark should treat it as a four-way stop unless law enforcement or other authorized persons are directing traffic. If you rely on emergency medical equipment powered by electricity and your power goes out, you should call 911.
Manhattan Public Works also suggests customers conserve water during this period. The water treatment plant is not on the list for rolling blackouts. If a blackout did occur, city officials say the water treatment plant is served by a generator with the power to operate all equipment at a base flow level if necessary.
Because some of the equipment at the wastewater treatment plant and sewer lift stations will be impacted by blackouts, reducing the amount of sanitary sewer waste will help preserve plant operations.
