B.C. Hydro will conduct a planned power outage in the north BX area Wednesday so the Regional District of North Okanagan can perform system maintenance.
“This power outage will impact one of Greater Vernon water utility’s pump stations in the affected area,” said Al Cotsworth, with RDNO.
“We request that residents in the affected areas not use water during this period, as it will aid the utility in bringing the water system back on-line more efficiently after the electrical works are finished.”
The power outage will start at 9 a.m. and it is expected to end by 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The following areas will be affected:
Baker Hogg Road – Just South of L&A Road to just north of Glenhayes Road
Brentwood Road – West side of road
Cools Road – Herry Road to L&A Road
Dedecker Road – L&A Road to Silver Star Road
