MORE than 700 homes in the Glenmore neighbourhood of the British Properties will be in the dark all day Wednesday as BC Hydro has planned a power outage.
Residents east of Ballantree Park and north of a zigzagging line that traces Crestline Road, Greenwood Road, St. Andrews Road, Hawstead Place and Kenwood Road will be cut off from the grid from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A second block of homes on the Capilano River Regional Park and Capilano Golf Club corridor will also be affected.
BC Hydro is cutting off power to safely replace distribution poles that serve the neighbourhood.
The District of West Vancouver is asking residents in the area to turn off all lights, electric heaters and major appliances and unplug all electronic before the power goes off.
Residents should also avoid unnecessary water use during the outage, as it should be reserved for drinking water and fire response.
