CURRENT NEWS & INFORMATION

Water Supply Update – Carson and Underwood Water Systems

Due to drier conditions and above average temperatures a statewide drought emergency has been declared by Governor Jay Inslee for the State of Washington. The Skamania PUD is actively monitoring our Carson and Underwood Water System water sources and will keep our customers informed about developing conditions. Read the Water Supply Update for more information.

Underwood Substation Project

As part of the PUD’s commitment to providing safe‐reliable electric services to our customers, we are rebuilding the Underwood Substation near 300 Newell Road. Preliminary site preparation has begun in anticipation of construction commencing on July 1st. There will be increased traffic in this area during the five month construction schedule. Vehicles of the general contractor Wilson Construction, as well as Wilson’s subcontractors, will be present in the area, in addition to PUD personnel. Scheduled power outages will be necessary to install the new equipment and customers will be notified well in advance. Please direct any questions regarding the project to PUD staff, Brent Bischoff, General Manager or Gary Leonard, General Foreman.

Vegetation Management

With the prospect of an especially dry summer, the PUD will be  particularly proactive keeping vegetation out of the power lines  this summer. We would appreciate your assistance identifying locations where trees have grown very close to (within 1 foot) the  energized power lines. The energized lines are only the lines at  the very top of  the power poles.  If you see locations where trees have grown into or very close to the power lines, please note the  nearest power pole tag number (yellow tag on the pole about 6 feet up that has SK PUD on it) and phone it into the PUD (509) 427-5126 or email it to  info@skamaniapud.com. We appreciate your help.
