Update: Power restored to 1500 customers in the Cariboo

Hydro crews responded


Power has been restored to all but one customer in four areas in the Cariboo.

David Mosure, BC Hydro community relations, said the Gavin Lake and Marguerite feeders were restored Tuesday afternoon.

“There is still no cause reported though,” Mosure added.


Hydro crews are en route to four different areas in the Cariboo as approximately 1,500 customers are without electricity due to a transmission circuit failure.

According to the BC Hydro website, areas impacted include 264 customers living south of Fraser Road between Quesnel and Williams Lake, 480 customers west of Lynes Creek, north of Williams Lake, 390 customers on Moorehead Road, Likely Road, Little Lake Road, Quesnel Forks Road, Quesnel River Road, Keithley Creek Road and Cedar Creek Road and 374 customers on Jacobson Road, Likely Road, Beaver Lake Road, Tyee Lake Road, Gleason Crescent and McWilliam Place at Big Lake.

For outages call *HYDRO (*49376) on cell 1-800-BCHYDRO (1-800-224-9376) on a corded landline.
