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 on the Newskah Rd. at 9:30 AM on Thursday, August 20, 2020.  The outage is expected to last until 1:30 PM on that day and will affect roughly 20 customers.  Those impacted are residents on Newskah Rd., starting at 320 Newskah Rd and going to the end of the line.  All impacted customers will receive a notification phone call from the PUD.

The outage is part of an ongoing project by the PUD to conduct system maintenance.

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 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.
