GTE dispatched equipment and manpower immediately. The severity of the damage to the fiber cable prevented normal emergency restoration from working and re- quired special fusion splicing equipment to be brought in to repair the cable. Additionally the fiber cut was in the bottom of a sandy creek where repair had to be made in knee deep water and back- hoe digging equipment had to be used to remove collapsing sand from the work area. These condi- tions caused major delays in re- es- tablishing the toll circuits. The outage affected only the customers ability to place or receive long distance calls.
