Power Outages in Area A

Jul 18, 2016
Affected Communities: 
Electoral Area A

Looks as though a small landslide took out a transmission line structure (see attached photo – sorry that it’s a bit grainy) and caused power outages in Gold Bridge, Bralorne, Gun Lake and Tyaughton Lake.

Currently the water reservoirs still have capacity for basic hygenic/cooking purposes, but please refrain from irrigating gardens, lawns or washing your car/quad/boat!

A contractor out of Lillooet is enroute with equipment to gain access to the site plus a crew from Kamloops with the necessary equipment to change out the pole if needed.  Because there is no access for a line truck or crane, a helicopter is required.  Booked for 2pm, with an expected arrival time of 3pm, the crew is expected to have the area re-energized early this evening.  This time may change, so please check back here for updates.
