Work on high-voltage switch requires outage for Mission Ridge area customers

Chelan County PUD
News Release

Temporary repairs for a switch on a transmission line will require a power outage from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, May 10, that will leave some 120 Chelan PUD customers out of service along Mission Ridge Road to end of the line (see map) on top of the ridge southwest of Wenatchee.

Problems with the switch caused a 40-minute power outage and small grass fire on Tuesday. Friday’s planned outage is needed so PUD crews can get the work done safely and as quickly as possible. Another planned outage may be needed for final repairs, but no date for that work has been set.

Customers affected include those in the Forest Ridge development, Mission Ridge ski area and service to communications equipment on the ridge.


For questions about the outage contact PUD Customer Service at 661-8400.
