Manager’s Message – May 2024

Roger Kline HeadshotGreetings,

You will notice increased inspection and construction work from Northern Wasco County PUD (NWCPUD) crews and contractors starting next month.

Utility pole inspection, testing and treatment are critically important because much of our electrical system is transmitted and distributed via overhead lines. Similarly, we are actively managing our joint-use program to ensure all the nonelectric service wires and interconnections on PUD poles are safe and appropriate.

Please stay tuned for the release of our updated smart device application, SmartHub, as well as our website. Just like our infrastructure, these are all built to better serve your needs.

Also, we’re close to announcing some exciting and much-needed public partnerships for our community. Just like the formation of your electric PUD, community-owned assets to deliver safe, reliable services at cost are at the core of what we do.

It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through 2024. So much excellent work is being accomplished at NWCPUD by your excellent staff.

Enjoy the sunshine and be safe as you spend more time outside!

Best,
Manager Roger Kline
