Contractor hits power line, causes outage


Monday around 12:40 p.m. a contractor working on Simcoe Drive dug into a Klickitat PUD line, resulting in a power outage.

The outage affected approximately 885 residences and businesses on the south side of Goldendale.

Crews were able to isolate the underground power line, allowing them to reenergize a portion of these customers around 1:17 p.m. The crew then evaluated the situation further and were able to isolate the outage to one street lighting account.

All customers were back in power by 1:55 p.m.
