The PUD has multiple COVID-19 Assistance Program for customers who need assistance paying their bills due to economic hardships resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Disconnects for non-payment and late fees are currently suspended per Governor's Proclamation 20-23.7.

The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers of a planned power outage in Ocean Shores beginning at 9:30 AM on Monday, June 22, 2020.  The outage is expected to last until 2:30 PM on that day and will affect roughly 40 customers.  Those impacted are residents on Sollecks Ave. SE, Itswoot Ave. SE, Skamokawa Court SE, Toleak St. SE and some residents of Quinault Ave. SE (#595-603).  All impacted customers will receive a notification phone call from the PUD.

The outage is part of an ongoing project by the PUD to replace aging power poles in the area.  During the outage crews will move power lines from old poles to the new ones.

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 five 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.
