Important Announcement Regarding The Storm Cleanup

Wheat Belt Public Power District Commences Power Pole Cleanup Following April 6th Storm

Wheat Belt Public Power District announces the initiation of a comprehensive power pole
cleanup operation in the aftermath of the severe storm that struck on April 6th. Recognizing the
urgency to restore normalcy to the affected areas, Wheat Belt has enlisted the expertise of a
reputable contractor to spearhead the cleanup efforts.
The destructive forces of the April 6th storm left a trail of damage, including over 1100 power
poles across our service area. In line with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, Wheat Belt is diligently ensuring that
the cleanup process adheres to the highest safety and environmental standards.
As part of these regulations, it is imperative that the damaged power poles be disposed of in
certified landfills to mitigate any potential environmental hazards. While Wheat Belt empathizes
with the desire of our customers and community members to salvage materials for personal
use, it is regrettable that, due to regulatory requirements and safety concerns, customers will
not be permitted to take the poles.
Wheat Belt remains committed to the swift and efficient restoration of power infrastructure,
prioritizing the safety and well-being of our communities. We extend our gratitude to our
customers for their patience and understanding during this challenging time.
