Lights Are Back on in Historic Greenbelt, Thousands of Outages in Service Area

Pepco is reporting a large number of outages in Greenbelt's service area, which includes College Park, Riverdale, and the University of Maryland.


Following a Monday night alert from the City of Greenbelt that power was out in most of historic Greenbelt, the city's website reported on Tuesday that power is now on in most of the community.

Following Sandy's pass by, on Tuesday morning Pepco's outage map showed 2,902 power outages in the area of Greenbelt, which also includes parts of College Park, Riverdale and the University of Maryland.

To report power outages call 1-877-PEPCO-62 (1-877-737-2662).

Customers may also use Pepco's online outage reporting form.

Greenbelt city operations remain closed Tuesday, including recreation, facilities, and offices. Refuse and recycling will not be picked up Tuesday as collections are being pushed back a day, according to the city.

Residents who normally have Tuesday pick up, will get pickup on Wednesday. Those who normally get pickup on Wednesday will get pickup on Thursday, and Thursday on Friday. But the city will not offer yard waste collection on Friday, according to the city.

Normal city operations will resume on Wednesday, the city said.
