OAKVILLE, Wash. – The Grays Harbor PUD will conduct a planned power outage tomorrow (Wednesday) in the Garrard Creek Road area outside of Oakville. The outage, which is expected to last up to four hours, is necessary to transfer power lines to a new pole that was installed to replace a deteriorated pole.
The power outage will affect approximately 95 customers on Garrard Creek Road, Mattson Road, Harp Road, Forrest Road, Brooklyn Road, Wilderness Road, Western Lane, Dahl Road, and Coyote Crest. Customers within the planned outage area are advised to protect sensitive electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items and leaving them disconnected until the power is fully restored.
In addition, customers are advised that the length of the outage is an estimate and power could be restored at any time. For that reason, it is not safe to make repairs to your electrical system without having the power disconnected at your specific location.
