Columbia MO, May 2, 2019 – In the wake of storms that swept through Missouri on Tuesday, crews of municipal lineworkers from Nixa and Columbia are helping restore power to the City of Lebanon.

Crews of lineworkers from Nixa Utilities and City of Columbia Water & Light responded to assist Lebanon’s municipal utility staff in power restoration and repair work after high winds uprooted trees and snapped power poles, causing power outages in the city. Four lineworkers from Columbia and three from Nixa, equipped with bucket trucks, digger trucks, and other work vehicles, are working with City of Lebanon utility crews to restore power, and will continue to help until repair work is completed. 

The work is being coordinated through the Missouri Public Utility Alliance. MPUA’s mutual aid program allows city utility workers to help during widespread outages in other communities. The assisting cities pay the salaries of their linemen and are then reimbursed by the city receiving assistance. The mutual aid provided between cities may include assistance with water, sewer, natural gas, or electric services.
