Goochland County - Operational Status Post Tropical Storm Michael

Tropical Storm Michael has significantly impacted the Goochland County community. Below is an update on the operational status of the County and important information for residents as they begin the clean-up process.


As of Noon, on Friday, October 12th over 2,500 Dominion Energy Virginia customers are without service.  Dominion Energy Virginia asks that you help with recovery from the damage Tropical Storm Michael left in its path by doing two important things:

  1. Report outages! Don’t assume they know you are without power. Use your mobile device and go to http://spr.ly/6184Dftoe or call us at 1-866-DOM-HELP.
  2. Stay away from downed power lines. Assume they are energized and dangerous. Keep family, neighbors and pets a minimum of 30 feet away and call them at 1-866-DOM-HELP. Choose the option to report a downed wire.

 

The County Administration building located at 1800 Sandy Hook Rd. is open for business with limited capacity till 5 p.m., operating under generator power.  County facilities that are closed due to the widespread power outage include the Central High School Cultural and Educational Complex, the Goochland Sports Complex, and the Goochland County Animal Shelter.
