LMUD’s system returns to the Caribou transmission line

According to a statement from the Lassen Municipal Utility District, after 77 days of receiving power from Honey Lake Power, LMUD returned to the Caribou transmission line Friday, Sept. 17.

In order for LMUD to interconnect with the fire-ravaged Caribou line, PG&E replaced 68 damaged poles. Although extensive progress has been made on repairing the badly damaged line, there is still work to be completed.

Further repairs are tentatively scheduled by PG&E to begin Sept. 27, and LMUD will return to HLP when repairs commence and continue until they are completed.

LMUD would like to thank its customers for their patience and understanding during what has been a very difficult summer. The publicly owned utility will continue to provide updates to the community as information becomes available.
