The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers in the area of Bush Creek Road between Elma and McCleary, of a planned power outage beginning at 9:30 AM on Thursday, July 11, 2019. The outage is expected to last until 2:00 PM on that day and will affect roughly 60 customers.
Those impacted are residents of Bush Creek Road, Bush Creek Lane, Packard Lane, Prairie Place, Cedar Place, Maple Lane, Furford Lane and House Lane. Impacted customers will receive a notification phone call from the PUD.
During the outage, PUD crews will replace aging poles and restring power lines in the impacted area.
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 four and a half 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.
