Chelan PUD has a thoughtful and comprehensive Wildfire Mitigation Program in place to protect communities and increase the resiliency of the electrical grid. We continue to build upon this program as we learn more about wildfire risk in Chelan County, and adapt to changing conditions.
Chelan County is a geographically diverse place with forested mountains, wetlands and shrub-steppe foothills. The tools we use to address wildfire risk are area-specific and backed by detailed fire risk studies and industry best-practices.
