JCP&L is no longer providing restoration updates. Mayor and OEM have contacted higher authorities. See email for additional info

From West Amwell Emergency Management:
March 8 2018 1930 Update

Little has changed since this afternoon’s update. We have still to see a JCP&L line truck in West Amwell. Twenty percent of the Township remains without power. Neither Mayor Bergenfeld or Township Emergency Management personnel are receiving updates from JCP&L representatives. Mayor Bergenfeld has been in touch with a Vice President of JCP&L, however he was unable to assist. The Mayor has also been in touch with Senator Turner’s office to seek assistance in elevating our problems.

At this time I am unable to provide any JCP&L updates at all.
West Amwell Police Department, Public Works, Emergency Management, and Fire Company are doing what ever we can to assist the members of the public.

As of this writing, the following streets are closed, or compromised:
Rocktown Hill Road.
Closed between Route 31 & Gulick Road.
Tree across the road, in to power wires

Rock Road West, Near Lakeview,
Tree across the road, with primary wires down in the street.

Rocktown Lambertville Road
Once again is closed Near # 300. There are also primary wires down on the side of the road in the area of Rocktown Hill Road .

George Washington Road
Near # 12, Low hanging tree, in to wires. Passable with a small vehicle.

Our frustration level with JCP&L has reached the highest possible level. Plans are being put in place to address this totally unacceptable response by JCP&L at the next Township meeting.

Once Again, I will post if I have updates
