COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A local power association will conduct a "system improvement" project beginning Tuesday.

About 900 customers of the Southern Pine Electric Power Association will be affected with temporary power outages.

Some of these outages could last up to three hours on either day of the project, and outages will occur during the daytime hours on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Each day from approximately 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. in the morning and from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. in the afternoon,” said Leif Munkel, communication coordinator for Southern Pine Electric Power Association. “So during those hours, if there are any particular things that you need to take care of in your home, prepare for those times to be without power. The outages will be temporary, but they will be off and on throughout those times."

Southern Pine encourages those affected by the project, especially those with special medical needs, to make some contingency plans for the outage periods.

Some of the primary roads included in the project are:

  • U.S. 49
  • Seminary-Sumrall Road
  • Smyrna Road
  • McDonald Chapel Road
  • Seminary-Mike Conner Road
  • Oakdale Church Road
