PUD proceeding with Plain river access

o13Chelan PUD commissioners Monday reviewed and refined the list of Public Power Benefit projects recommended for funding in 2016 and 2017, based on revenues available. Among the projects approved for funding was site improvement at the Plain Substation that allow access to the Wenatchee River. This would presumably include off-road parking that will eliminate the hazardous shoulder parking along the Lake Wenatchee Highway at the Wenatchee River bridge.  The PUD also approved continued expansion of the PUD fiber network.
