INTERNET SERVICE RESTORED TO MOST OF CHELAN AND MANSON
LocalTel has received the following information from Chelan County
Most should have internet and cable access
Crews continue to work on service in Chelan Falls and along Hwy 97 - The good news is that internet services have been restored to most businesses and residents in Chelan and Manson. Those who are having connectivity issues should contact their service providers. Internet service remains down for those in Chelan Falls and along areas of Hwy 97 served by Chelan PUD fiber. Fiber crews will continue restoration work tonight.
After making remarkable progress in less than 72 hours to restore power to customers in the Chelan Valley/Chelan Falls/Manson areas, PUD crews were called on by fire personnel to de-energize lines along the south shore of Lake Chelan below the Yacht club due to fires in the First Creek area flaring back up. Approximately 600 meters were taken out of service during the afternoon. All have now been re-energized with the exception of a handful of customers where there is damaged equipment that will needed to be repaired.
Work has been slow in the Antoine Creek/Chelan airport area because of the rugged terrain and continuing fire activity. There is nothing new to report at this time on restoration in this area. It may take through the weekend to restore power to this area. Mutual aid crews from Okanogan and Douglas County were on site to help today and they will be joined by a crew from Grant County PUD tomorrow. Each utility has provided one crew with 4 - 5 service personnel - crews are bringing materials and poles to help with restoration. Two contract crews continue to assist the PUD in the airport area, bringing some specialized equipment to assist with repairs in hard-to-reach terrain.
Chelan Falls, Powerhouse and Beebe Parks all remain closed until further notice to the public. The parks are being used as staging areas for fire personnel and the National Guard.
The latest count on damaged equipment is 140 distribution poles and 12 transmission structures. The fire is placing a great deal of pressure on PUD resources such as poles and cable, as well as personnel. The PUD is working hard to restock materials to support the crews. Regular and previously scheduled work is being delayed due to fire response. The public is asked for their understanding and patience if a scheduled project is delayed.
Customers are advised that even in the areas where power has been restored, there may be some isolated outages due to damaged equipment or changing fire conditions. Customers who are back in service can resume normal power use; customers who are still out of power are reminded to please turn off and/or unplug electronics and appliances and leave outside light on. This will protect your appliances from potential power surges and an outside light will help our crews know who is back in service;
The PUD advises any Medline customers or those customers on medical support equipment still without power to seek alternate housing arrangements, check in with the Red Cross at the Entiat Valley Community Resource Center, 2084 Entiat Way, or go to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital at 503 E. Highland Ave. in Chelan.
The PUD office in Chelan is open.
