Planned power outage in the Prosser area - RESCHEDULED

The outage is rescheduled to go from Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 11:00pm to Sunday, April 18, 2021 at 6:00am.
The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has rescheduled high priority maintenance and repair of power lines and equipment connecting the Prosser area to the regional power grid. To enable BPA personnel to work safely, an outage is required that will result in the loss of electric service for Benton PUD customers. The work is preventative in nature and necessary to maintain the safety and reliability of the BPA electric system.  Benton PUD apologizes for the inconvenience and has already begun evaluating options for how we may be able to avoid planned outages of this nature in the future.

Below is a map of the impacted area:

Benton PUD encourages all of our customers to be prepared for outages and keep essential supplies handy in the event of an outage.
