The Grays Harbor Public Utility District has announced a planned power outage which will impact PUD customers in Pacific Beach, Moclips and Taholah. The outage will begin at 8:00 PM on May 21, and is expected to last until 6:00 AM on May 22.
During the outage, multiple PUD crews will undertake maintenance work on transmission lines, including the replacement of several deteriorating power poles, line replacement and substation maintenance work.
The outage will impact roughly 2150 Grays Harbor PUD customers, including all customers on SR 109 from the intersection of Chauncey Lane north to and including Taholah. Also impacted will be all customers on roads feeding off of SR 109 between those two points and the communities of Pacific Beach, Moclips and Seabrook. The outage will also impact customers on the Ocean Beach Rd from 2303 Ocean Beach Rd north to Pacific Beach.
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 ten 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.
