Continued Power Outages for Area A

Jul 18, 2016
Affected Communities: 
Electoral Area A

BC Hydro has provided the following update on the repairs to resolve the power outage in Gold Bridge, Bralorne, Gun Lake and Tyaughton Lake:

"Crews were able to reach the structure and remove the old pole from the conductor.  unfortunately, they were not able to place the pole back in the same location because of the large washout.  The plan for tomorrow (Tuesday) is to set the new pole and anchor on stable ground across the washout.  At this point, our best estimate is that we should be able to restore power by tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.  Site conditions continue to be a challenge and we appreciate your understanding."

Water supply continues to be a concern and the SLRD requests that water only be used for essential purposes.  We will provide additional updates as they become available.  The next update will be Tuesday morning, once we have been informed of what time the crew is able to head back up to the site.
