Planned Power Outage - Prosser Area

Outage scheduled for seven (7) hours in duration

The Bonneville Power administration (BPA) will be performing high priority maintenance and repair of power lines and equipment connecting the Prosser area to the regional power grid. To enable BPA personnel to work safely, an outage is required that will result in the loss of electric service for Benton PUD customers. The work is preventative in nature and necessary to maintain the safety and reliability of the BPA electric system. Benton PUD apologizes for the inconvenience and has already begun evaluating options for how we may be able to avoid planned outages of this nature in the future.

A map of the impacted area and outage preparedness information is available at and at the Benton PUD office located at 250 Gap Road, Prosser, WA. 

People needing assistance recharging or maintaining the operation of life sustaining medical equipment can receive assistance during the outage by contacting the House Supervisor at 509.303.0470.
