KALISPELL – The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has scheduled two brief power outages on Friday to replace equipment that was damaged during Wednesday night’s storm.

Making the repairs will impact members of Flathead Electric Cooperative on the line that runs from the Haskill Substation west of Kalispell to just past the Happy’s Inn area.

BPA estimates the approximate timing of the outages will be at 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., but they should only last for a couple of minutes each. Attempts are being made to notify members who will be affected by the interruptions in service.
