Edward “Eddie” Bromiley, a technician for Chelan PUD’s Central Maintenance group, died Wednesday in an accident at Rock Island Dam.

During crane testing the 40-year-old employee was hit by a piece of steel from the spillway structure.

Bromiley had worked at Chelan PUD since April 2000. He became an apprentice wireman in August 2003 and a journeyman in October 2004. Eddie moved to being a meter relay technician in May 2005 and into the technician position in May 2008.

Support for his family is ongoing. A flag is flying in his memory outside the PUD’s Tech Shop in Wenatchee.

Thursday has been a day of mourning at Chelan PUD. Bromiley’s coworkers across the PUD have been meeting to share memories and grieve.

Friends of the family have organized a community candlelight vigil for him at 7:30 tonight in Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee.
