Underground Cable Replacements


Chelan County PUD will soon begin replacing underground electrical cable throughout its service territory. First, contract crews will excavate and install new conduit underground. Later in the year, PUD crews will be back to pull new cable. This work is required to replace ageing equipment.

When & What to Expect

  • Once this work begins, it will last about two days in each location, except Mundun Canyon
    • Once work begins on Mundun Canyon, it will last about four days
  • Working hours are generally 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday
  • The highlighted section on the maps below shows the approximate work area
