The City of El Dorado Springs electric supplier may order the City to begin rolling blackouts.  In an attempt to prevent this from happening the City is strongly encouraging all residential and commercial customers to begin conservation measures immediately.  This may prevent the need for rolling blackouts in our City.  Please turn off unnecessary lights and appliances.  Delay doing laundry, vacuuming, and other activities that use electricity.  Turn your thermostats down as low as you can tolerate.  We hope that if everyone helps reduce their demand for electricity, the power grid that supplies our area, will continue to operate.  This electric power emergency alert is critical for today, Feb. 16, and may be necessary for one or two more days.  Please comply to the best of your ability.
