New Switchgear For Hungry Horse Dam

Posted: Updated:
HUNGRY HORSE -

Hungry Horse Dam is getting some repairs for about $5.5 million.

The money is coming from the Bureau of Reclamation, and is going to Koontz Electric Company, Inc. out of Arkansas.

They're going to start replacing the switchgear, that's made up of several electrical parts, at the dam on April 19 and hopefully have it all sewn up before 2016.

Facility operations manager Dennis Philmon calls this work "essential."
