Western Power Maintenance ProgramTue, 27 Jun 2017
The Shire of Wyalkatchem is working with Western Power to increase public awareness of network improvements, service disruptions and other important community information. This will be published via the Shire website and in local notices as information becomes available.
As part of Western Power’s 2017-18 Maintenance Program we making a substantial investment in the Wyalkatchem Community, replacing 239 power poles and 7 kilometres of overhead powerlines.
Work will commence in July 2017 and continue through to June 2018, however this may change due to weather and other unforeseeable circumstances. If resident and/or business are going to be affected by an outage they will notified individually by our planned outages team via a letter.
Keeping the community and our crews safe throughout these works is our number one priority. It is not always safe to work on live lines so there will be times when we will need to interrupt the power supply.
To ensure that your community is kept up to date about both planned and unplanned outages we recommend that you visit the Western Power website for the outage map. This will provide current outage location and estimated restoration time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we undertake these network improvements.
