Update:  All power is stable as of early this morning in the University
of Oregon Switchroom which houses the NERO Eugene Hub (among many other
communication and data services).

The work this morning was not intended to be service affecting.  The
work involved finishing the installation of an EPO isolation panel and,
unfortunately, it exposed a problem when an isolated circuit was brought
back into the EPO system.

The system is stable now and staff is confident no additional issues
will occur while they investigate and trace the source.  Additional work
will most likely be necessary to resolve the issue and we will plan and
notify appropriately at that time.

Our sincere apologies for any inconveniences this outage caused.
