Oct. 19 update: 

Hello Grant PUD team,

Just a quick note to inform you that the sequestration at Priest Rapids Dam has officially ended (on Oct. 16). Work at the plant will resume as scheduled.

Many have expressed a huge appreciation for those ​​employees and their families who worked through and lived the sequestration process. Your commitment and dedication to keeping the plant and our business operational is recognized.

A shout out to the Power Production management (PRD/WD), Safety and Security teams and all of the support staff and volunteers for making this process as seamless as possible. Your work certainly made the situation much more comfortable for those in sequestration than it could have been.

Dave Ponozzo,
Manager of Emergency Preparedness
