Work to restore access to high voltage power lines in areas burned by the Wenatchee Complex begins this week. Jim Caldwell, Chelan County PUD transmission system engineer says a crew using a bulldozer will work north from near Number One Canyon for about a mile a half. The lines carry electricity from Rock Island Dam to the Andrew York Switchyard on Easy Street. The PUD, which owns nearly a thousand acres in the hills west of Wenatchee, will then seed the areas with a mix of native grass to provide much needed winter feed for deer and other wildlife in the fire-damaged hills. The PUD crew will also install two basins that will collect water for wildlife. Caldwell says if you plan to hike on the Sage Hills Trail this week, be on the lookout for the crew and equipment. The seeding will be completed by mid-November. He adds improving the access will make it easier for PUD crews to reach the line for future maintenance as well as improving wildlife habitat. The cost of the work is estimated at $15,000.
