The City of Piperton is aware of the increased occurrences of power outages over the past few months. While some of these outages have been the result of severe weather, others are due to the increased demand being placed on the system and measures to address the demand. Chickasaw has been aware of this demand, and they have worked to proactively address this issue.
Chickasaw is constructing a new power sub-station in Piperton on the Mississippi state line. This substation will alleviate a portion of demand on the current Rossville sub-station, which currently feeds the City of Piperton south of Highway 57. This new facility has been planned for some time, and it was scheduled for completion this past May. However, the spring rains combined with issues with TVA have delayed this completion until September of 2020.
We appreciate your patience as our utility provider works to upgrade and improve services to our growing City.
