NSTAR expects to have all of Arlington back up and running by Thursday night, according to a company press release.
At 2 a.m. this morning, about 4 percent of NSTAR customers in Arlington – or 903 of 21,131 – were still without power, according to the company’s outage map.
At the time of the release, 8 p.m. Tuesday, roughly 5 percent of Arlington customers, or 1,108, didn’t have power. At that time, 3.91 percent of NSTAR’s Massachusetts customers, or 45,066 out of 1,151,385, were down.
Arlington’s outage numbers peaked Monday evening at about 15 percent, which was typical of Boston’s inner suburbs.
An important note on downed trees, limbs and branches from the town:
If you have not done so already, please contact Public Works dispatch to report a downed street tree or large limb at 781-316-3301.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 5, Public Works will be systematically collecting downed limbs from town trees. Any debris that fell along streets and sidewalks will be picked up. All Streets will be visited. To assist in this cleanup, Public Works is asking residents, if they are able, to stack town tree branches along the sidewalk in a way that allows access to sidewalks and roadways.
For tree or large limb removal from private property, contact a professional tree service. Residents who need to dispose of smaller branches are reminded to take advantage of the town’s weekly curbside yard waste collection. Barrels can be used for yard waste disposal if labeled “yard waste.” Free yard waste stickers are available at the DPW Offices at 51 Grove St.
