The Ohio University campus could experience intermittent power outages throughout November as American Electric Power performs maintenance on power lines that service the Athens campus.

The university experiences a campus-wide outage Sunday morning that lasted about an hour.  According to an email sent to the OU community power was restored by 9:26 a.m.

The maintenance is part of an ongoing effort, which started Oct. 1, to rebuild one of the circuits serving the Athens area.

The maintenance effort is expected to last until Dec. 2.
