UPDATE July 16, 2022 9:30 am

Power was restored and the pumps came back on at 3:45 am this morning. Water is back in the canal and making its way towards Boardman. Crews will start the main canal pump stations when water is available.

The Phase 1 Pump Station is down due to a fire near the Crossroads Truck Stop. The fire has burned a power pole, which has affected the power at the pump station. The pumps went off at 5:13 pm.

There is a small amount of water coming into the canal.

BOR operators are on site and waiting for Pacific Power. It is forecasted to take at least 4 more hours to replace the pole. UPDATE: PP&L say until midnight.

WEID crews are turning the district pump stations on the main canal OFF until morning, or water is restored, whichever is later.
