JCP&L - Helpful Tips Regarding ETRs

As Winter Storm Ezekiel comes to a close, here are some helpful tips to relay to residents regarding JCP&L’s Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR). The following information is on the JCP&L MyTown website.

  • A Global ETR is an estimate of when service will be restored to the majority of customers within JCP&L following a major outage event. It will be provided no later than 24 hours after the weather event has passed and conditions are safe enough to work.
  • Global ETRs will be displayed until more detailed ETRs can be established, generally between 2 and 4 days, depending on the severity of the event.
  • For your Individual ETR, log into your account using the form on the top right corner of the MyTown page, or view the outage map. Individual ETR is an estimate of when a particular customer’s (or group of customers’) service is estimated to be restored based on the above guidelines.
  • ETRs are generally updated daily during major outage events.

Note: If you need to make repairs to your property, the ETR may be longer than posted. The attachment in this email outlines the homeowner guidelines for your home’s electrical system. 

Please remind your residents to report their power outages. Additionally, new outages may continue to come in for each of our municipalities that are not a result of the storm. JCP&L will continue to work to restore all customers.

JCP&L reminds customers to immediately report any downed wires to the company or their local police department.  Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity.

As always JCP&L appreciates partnering with our Police, Fire, OEM and other emergency professionals in each of our municipalities.

Mountain Lake Algal Bloom Identification

Warren County Board of Health received a report of a suspected Harmful Algal Bloom at Mountain Lake in Belvidere and confirmed through sampling and analysis that an HAB is present.

Warren County Board of Health will post an advisory at public access points. Please respect the "RED" Danger signage.

Because the weather is changing, the Warren County Board of Health anticipates the HAB will be short lived and plan on resampling in the beginning of December. We will share these results as well as any new advisory recommendations received at Liberty Township Municipal Offices.

Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted lanternfly,  initially found in Berks County Pennsylvania in 2014, was discovered in the New Jersey environment in July 2018 in Warren County.  Following this discovery, it was also found in Mercer and Hunterdon counties.  A Quarantine was initiated to slow the movement and control the further spread of this insect throughout the state. The Department and USDA field crews are out conducting surveys, assessing properties and conducting treatments against this invasive exotic insect in the Quarantine zone. As a result of surveys conducted by state and federal crews the Department is proposing to expand the Quarantine to include Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Salem and Somerset Counties beginning in August of 2019. Even though entire counties are identified in the Quarantine, the insect does not infest the entire county. This insect does not pose a direct threat to humans or animals but feeds on over 70 trees and plants and can cause significant damage to all sectors of the state’s agricultural industry and the forested environment as well.
