Nile Spacer Cable System Line Rebuild Project

At Pacific Power, we're evaluating wildfire risk throughout our service area as part of our strategic plan to harden infrastructure and mitigate fire risk. As part of this effort, we've identified an existing 12.47 kilovolt (kV) distribution power line for rebuild/relocation with the intention of promoting wildfire mitigation and improving access to the line for operations and maintenance. The project is located in central Washington on the east slope of the Cascade Range approximately 20 miles northwest of Naches, primarily within the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest (OWNF). The route generally parallels the Little Naches and American rivers and State Highway 410. Most of the project is located within the OWNF, with a small portion located on private property. Customers served by this distribution line include recreational cabins, private residences, ranches, campgrounds, businesses and other government facilities.
