The two cooling centers in Quartzsite will remain open for the 223 Bouse customers who continue to be affected by the power outage in that area. The cooling centers are located at the 1st Assembly of God Church (665 W. Tyson, Quartzsite) and The Group of Isaiah 58 (100 N. Moon Mountain, Quartzsite). 10 poles are down near Bouse. The APS team has distributed 10,000 pounds of dry ice between 9:30 and 11:30am to customers in Quartzsite and an estimated 3,000 pounds of dry ice to customers in Bouse since 10:30 am. Dry ice continues to be available at the Bouse General Store located at 27646 W. Hwy 72. APS is also providing bottled water to customers for drinking purposes.

If customers procure bagged ice separately, they can send their receipts to APS for reimbursement for up to 40 lbs. Customers should save their receipts and can mail them to APS P.O. Box 53999 Sta 3108 Phoenix, AZ 85072.
APS would like to thank all of our customers for their patience while crews have worked to restore power. Storms can cause significant damage to infrastructure and APS appreciates the community’s collaborative efforts in storm response. We will continue to work to restore all remaining affected customers in La Paz County as quickly as possible.
