Planned power outage in Cosi on Saturday

Beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Grays Harbor PUD has scheduled a planned power outage on cemetery hill in Cosmopolis Saturday. The outage is expected start at 8:30 a.m. and last until roughly 2:30 p.m.

This outage is necessary to repair the transmission line that runs from the bottom of Mill Creek Drive to the top of the hill at Altenau, which was damaged by a large tree during Monday’s storm. Crews will be repairing the line and straightening the poles in rough terrain on a steep incline. Tree crews have been in the area the last few days clearing brush in preparation for the repairs.

Customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions and microwaves by unplugging those items. Leave everything disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.

The outage time of six hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at anytime as work is completed. Therefore, it is not safe to do electrical work or repairs during that period of time.
