LaFollette Utilities Board (LUB) is a municipally-owned electrical power distributor, water and wastewater utility owned by the City of LaFollette, Tennessee. The city of LaFollette is located about 45 miles north of Knoxville, Tennessee, in Campbell County.

LUB purchases its wholesale power from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). LUB's water supply is pumped from Norris Lake and treated at its 5 million gallon per day water treatment plant. Wastewater is treated at LUB's 1.25 million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant.

2019 Flooding Information

Customers with services at some local docks have experienced flooded electrical equipment.  For safety reasons, LUB has disconnected many of these services. 

The following was given to LUB from the State of Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance Division of Fire Prevention (SFMO):

  • As soon as access is possible, a cursory safety inspection will be performed at all locations impacted by floodwaters to determine if electrical equipment has been inundated by rising water.

  • During the visit, the SFMO will only be assessing by a visual inspection from the outside of the structures for the level that the water reached.  This will result in one of the three possible actions below:

1.  Determination that floodwaters did not reach any electrical equipment.  No action will be taken.  LUB determines if electrical service may be turned back on.

2.  Determination that floodwaters did inundate some equipment to a minor extent and the replacement of receptacles and switches will be all that is needed to ensure safe operation.  A form letter (SAMPLE LETTER) will be left on location specifying steps that should be taken with no follow-up electrical safety inspection required.

3.  Determination that floodwaters did rise to the level that has affected the electrical installation.  There will be a RED rejection sticker applied to the electrical service equipment impacted and a form letter (SAMPLE LETTER) will be left on location specifying steps that will need to be taken to replace or repair the electrical components.  Upon completion of replacement or repairs, an electrical permit will be required to be obtained and a follow up electrical safety inspection will be performed with passage of the inspection required before the service is re-energized.

 

  • When visit results in items 2 or 3, the meter number and location will be noted and given from the SFMO to LUB.  The SMFO will begin visits Monday, March 11, 2019 and will continue, when possible, until all locations impacted have been reviewed to ensure safety.  The SFMO will have State Electrical inspectors performing the visits in uniform with badges and/or SFMO logos on shirts or caps and will present identification upon request.
