  • Attachment removal

Pole Transfers:

Chelan County PUD requires that all Licensees use NJUNS (National Joint Use Notification System), a web-based asset management system for transfer notifications. New Licensees must register with NJUNS as a part of the licensing agreement execution process. Existing Licensees must transfer or remove equipment in the timeframe designated in the Licensing Agreement.
