Charging Stations Available In Stamford - Stamford Moms

From The City of Stamford

City crews are working with Eversource to clear debris and restore service to residents who lost power as a result of Tropical Storm Isaias. The City of Stamford will offer a charging station on Thursday  at Westhill High School, 125 Roxbury Road from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents can charge their devices at that time. Eversource will begin restoring power soon, but residents are advised to plan for multiple days without power.

According to Eversource, roughly 9,000 Stamford customers are without power as of Wednesday morning — representing roughly 15 percent of Stamford Eversource customers. During the storm, roughly 144 Stamford roads were closed due to downed wires or trees. City crews are coordinating with Eversource to prioritize public safety and clear all debris or downed wires.

Residents with storm debris on their property are encouraged to dispose of this debris at Stamford’s Transfer Station located at 101 Harborview Avenue. The Transfer Station (or “Scale House”) is open Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents can typically dispose of up to 200 pounds per day. Starting today — and continuing until Saturday, August 15 — Stamford residents are permitted to dispose of excess storm debris at no additional charge. This service is only available to Stamford residents, not commercial vehicles or entities. Stamford’s Transfer Station staff have discretion to turn away any waste that is not storm debris or appears to have originated out of town.

Below are a list of information and resources available for residents affected by the storm:

  • Contact numbers
    • Life threatening emergencies should be reported to 911
    • Power outages and downed power lines should be reported immediately to Eversource at 1.800.286.2000.
    • For nonemergency weather related issues should be reported to the Citizen’s Service line at 203.977.4140 during 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or 203.977.4444 during afterhours.
  • Information
    • Residents without power are strongly advised against using generators or grills indoors. Generators and grills can cause lethal carbon monoxide poisoning. Do not use a generator or grill indoors. Place them outside as far from your home as possible.
    • Residents can sign up for emergency alerts by visiting www.ctalert.gov, click on “Register for Alerts” and input their contact information.
    • Utilize the City’s charging station to recharge devices: Thursday, August 6 at Westhill High School, 125 Roxbury Road from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
