Taking Action to Stop Wildfire in
Paul Hauser, general manager of Trinity Public Utilities District in Weaverville, Calif. For many years, Trinity PUD has been looking at ways to reduce the threat of fires in its service area, which is located on heavily forested and sparsely populated land in Northern California. With California's 2020 fire season shattering records, there's new urgency to take action. Trinity PUD is embarking on an innovative pilot project.
Wildfire Risk Reduction, Reliability, and Asset Protection (WRAP) Project
The areas surrounding WAPA and Trinity PUD's systems are particularly vulnerable to fire risk due to the dense vegetation and steep terrain. This proposed WRAP project would reduce fire risk by expanding existing transmission/distribution rights-of-way (ROWs) on US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and private lands and implementing a proactive integrated vegetation management program within the expanded ROWs.
Public Safety Power Shutoff ZIP Code Alerts
Approximately 340 Trinity PUD customers who are served by the Big Bar, Hyampom, Grouse Creek, and Forest Glen substations may be affected when PG&E conducts a Public Safety Power Shut-off.
Did you know that you can receive Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event notifications even if you are not a PG&E account holder?
This means that you can be notified of potential public safety outages impacting you, your workplace, or the home of a friend or loved one, which may help you both prepare and stay safe.
