Planned Outage Notification - Friday December 15, 2017

12/12/17 1:00 PM- Skamania PUD will be taking a planned power outage to complete emergency repairs at the Cape Horn substation. This will affect all customers on the west end of the County from Smith-Cripe Road (MP 30) west to the County line. The 6-hour outage will start this Friday night, December 15, at 11:50 pm and is estimated to run through 6:00 am Saturday morning. This outage was scheduled because a heat seeking camera recently identified a hot connection that needs repaired to prevent failure of the overhead equipment. If left unrepaired, an equipment failure would lead to a much longer and unplanned outage. Please check back to our website for updates.
