Electrical power restored for thousands west of Lake Crescent

Fault was in Bonneville Power Adminstration line

PORT ANGELES — Electrical power was restored to some 5,533 Clallam County Public Utility District customers west of Lake Crescent by 5:30 p.m. Friday.

A problem on a Bonneville Power Administration transmission line problem knocked outelectrical power to Clallam County PUD customers on Friday morning.

The outage on Friday affected 5,336 customers in Clallam County — 16.32 percent — and 197 in West Jefferson County — 98.5 percent, according to the utility’s website.

The BPA crew came in from Olympia.

Clallam County PUD crews looked for the problem while BPA was en route.

“While they are on their way, we will see if we can identify where the problem’s at. Then the BPA crew can get to work when they get here,” said Nicole Hartman, spokesperson, Friday morning.

The best case scenario was an outage lasting four to eight hours, she said then.

The problem with the line was not immediately available.

The Sequim Logging Show, seen in May 2023, will operate next year as its own nonprofit organization to seek insurance coverage separate from the Sequim Irrigation Festival. Organizers of both the festival and show say it was a pragmatic decision and is similar to what the festival did in late 2017 after leaving the umbrella of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce.
