What do you mean by surges? Is the power cycling on/off quickly or are you seeing the lights go brighter? Surges are short duration high voltage spikes not detectable without measuring equipment. But they can be caused by power cycling on/off, when motors and other large equipment turn on/ff, by lightning strike near the power lines.

Better call WAPA. Could be loose connections somewhere or something shorting out across the lines.
