Planned Utility Shutdown Request (USR)
John Wayne Airport - Orange County (JWA) planned utility shutdown and return to operational status process applies to all intentional and scheduled shutdowns of Airport Utilities that have the potential to adversely impact multiple JWA Divisions, guests, tenants, and contractors. Utility Shutdowns are temporary, planned interruptions of service and systems for the safe maintenance, testing, repair, and replacement of equipment or for construction improvements. Utilities affected include, but are not limited to: Power, Water, Gas, Sewer/Waste, Data, Phone, Stormwater/Drainage, and Grease Interceptors.
The USR process is intended to coordinate a scheduled and safe event by notifying all impacted stakeholders, mitigating potential risks and planning for unexpected contingencies, communicating effectively throughout the event, and achieving intended utility levels. Only JWA designated personnel can shut down a utility and schedule shutdowns of Airport Utilities that have the potential to adversely impact multiple JWA Divisions, guests, tenants, and contractors.
Upon completion of Airport review, the organization requesting the utility shutdown (“Requestor”) must provide a Utility Shutdown Workplan Outline and a Communication Plan.
