Homer Electric Association crews will work on the final phase of the Stonehocker Creek Remediation project this week, causing periodic outages in Halibut Cove.

The project to fortify a line is in the Stonehocker Creek/McKeon Flats area near Halibut Cove, and, according to an HEA press release, difficult terrain will require at least two weeks for the project to be complete. HEA crews will begin on Thursday by delivering a crane to the Stonehocker Creek area. There will be an interruption of power for Halibut Cove members from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. while crews deliver the crane to the worksite safely.

Beginning Monday, Feb. 8, daily power outages for Halibut Cove members will be required to continue the remediation project. Outages will begin around 9 a.m. and last until about 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

In the event of inclement weather preventing HEA crews from working in the area on a certain day, HEA will update the Scheduled Outages page on its website. Consumers should take steps to protect all sensitive electronic equipment in homes and businesses.
