CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – EPB wants you to know they will clean up after themselves.

In many cases, they abandoned equipment and broken parts so they could tackle another area still without power.

But they will return to clean up.

They also say if you have damage to the wiring on the side of your home, you need to call a licensed electrician.

While the power company owns the meter, the meter center and wiring belong to the homeowner.  EPB can't repair meters until the meter center is operational.
