[8/17/17] Chelan County PUD Project To Restore Power To Communication Site On Slide Ridge

Posted in Public UtilityTagged , , , , , , , , ,


Two years ago, the First Creek Fire destroyed the communication towers at the top of Slide Ridge. Days earlier, the fire had destroyed the transmission lines that powered that station.

Last month, Chelan County PUD began the difficult task of replacing those transmission lines…
