Beware of Scam Phone Calls

Recently the PUD received calls from five local businesses informing us they were the target of scammers posing as PUD employees. This is a common scam, and we want you to protect yourself.

Please Drive Carefully in Work Zones

When driving in work zones, please slow down, obey flaggers, and stay alert to keep you and our workers safe.

Please Don't Attach Anything to Our Poles


We know it's a common practice, but there are good reasons why you shouldn't attach anything to a power pole:

  1. Attachments endanger our employees who climb poles.
  2. Attachments damage poles.
  3. We risk fines.

Thank you for helping us maintain a safe, reliable system.
