Update: Unscheduled failure of equipment prompted the outage an hour and a half sooner than planned. The Grays Harbor PUD says the equipment that failed was scheduled for replacement as part of the outage.

AMANDA PARK, Wash. – The Grays Harbor PUD is conducting a planned outage on Tuesday June 18th from 9:00 a.m. until approximately 9:00 p.m. near Amanda Park. Chief Resource Officer Doug Smith tells us the outage is necessary for system repairs to improve reliability and to replace equipment within the Crane Creek substation.
Customers that will be affected are those located north of Crane Creek near Amanda Park along State Highway 101, including the Kalaloch Lodge and National Park facilities in that location. Amanda Park and Lake Quinault areas will not be affected.
In preparation for this outage, we recommend that customers take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items and leaving them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be aware that the outage times are estimates only, and power could be restored at any time. Therefore, it is not recommended that you perform electrical work during the outage without taking the proper safety precautions, including having service disconnected if necessary.
