The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is performing a system upgrade on the transmission line that runs through Benton County. An outage is planned in the Cold Creek area starting at 10:00 pm Friday night, January 27 and will last about four hours. This is a preventative measure needed to maintain the reliability of electric system. An outage is necessary to ensure the work is performed as safely and efficiently as possible.
Future outages may be needed and will also take place at night for minimal disruption to our customers. When specific dates are determined, Benton PUD will post the information on its website and send impacted customers a letter prior to the outage.
