Work starting soon on River Road Fire Safety Improvements
Chelan PUD has identified the overhead utilities along this section of River Road as a candidate for undergrounding because it meets several criteria for fire risk and constructability. This project will help reduce the risk of wildfire ignition during extreme weather conditions.
This project is part of a larger plan to reduce fire risk in the most vulnerable areas of the county. That plan includes equipment upgrades and pruning trees and shrubs away from lines.
