The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers of a planned power outage on Bigelow Drive in South Aberdeen at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.  The outage is expected to last until 4:00 PM on that day and will affect around 10 customers.  Those impacted are residents on Bigelow Drive, starting at 51 Bigelow Drive and going to the end of the line.  All impacted customers will receive a notification phone call from the PUD.

The outage will allow crews to complete pole replacement work in the area.

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 seven hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at any time as work is completed.  Therefore, it is not safe to do home electrical work or repairs during that period.
