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 in North Beach of a planned power outage impacting Moclips, Pacific Beach, Seabrook and Taholah.  The outage will begin at 10:00 PM on Thursday, May 20 and is expected to last until 4:00 AM on Friday, May 21 and will affect nearly 1700 properties.  The impacted areas will include a portion of Ocean Beach Road, beginning at 2990 Ocean Beach Road north to the intersection with State Route 109 and customers and communities along State Route 109 from Chauncey Lane north to Taholah.  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 duration of six 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.
