The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers in East Grays Harbor County of a planned power outage beginning at 9:00 AM on June 8, 2016. The outage is expected to last until roughly 3:00 PM and will impact around 600 customers.
During the outage, PUD crews will remove a large tree threatening utility transmission lines. The outage will impact all customers in Malone, all customers on the Mox Chehalis Rd. and roads feeding off of the Mox Chehalis Rd., and customers on the East Mox Chehalis Rd. from the intersection with State Route 8 to Maxwell Hill. In the days leading up to the outage, all impacted customers will receive written and telephone messages from the PUD notifying them of the upcoming outage.
During the outage, Washington State Department of Transportation will provide flagger controlled, one-lane traffic flow on State Route 12 through the impacted area starting at milepost 25.
In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items. You should leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.
The outage time of six hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at any time as work is completed. Therefore, it is not safe to do electrical work or repairs during that period of time.
