Riviera Utilities sent 21 crew members to Florida to assist in mutual aid efforts post-Hurricane Idalia. Our crews departed for Gainesville, Florida, on Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2022, to aid Gainesville Regional Utilities in restoration.
RU sent electric lineworkers, engineering coordinators, and a vegetation management crew. Riviera has an ongoing mutual aid agreement with Gainesville Regional Utilities, and we are happy to lend a helping hand to another public utility, as they have assisted us in the past.
