We have determined that it was a tree on the line near the Little Salmon campground that caused a power outage on Saturday in Dawson and Faro. Power went out at 12 noon and was restored to Dawson within 35 minutes, and to Faro within 45 minutes. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this outage.
To residents in Faro and Ross River...a vegetation management crew will start brushing our transmission right-of-way in your area late next week. It's important to keep our right-of-ways clear to prevent outages by trees contacting the transmission lines.The crew expects to be finished by mid-May, before birds start nesting.
