The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers on and around the Elma Gate Road of a planned power outage which will impact nearly 50 customers.  The outage, which will allow crews to place utility equipment, will begin at 9:30 AM on Thursday, April 21st and is expected to last until 1:30 PM.  The impacted areas will be homes from 294 Elma Gate Road to its intersection with State Route 12 near Porter, homes on State Route 12 from the Elma Gate Road intersection to 5800 State Route 12, all homes on the Gibson Creek Road, and all homes on the Shelton Road.  All impacted customers will receive notification phone calls from the PUD.

In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items.  You should leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored. 

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