    Delivering electricity to your home or business is a partnership between you and the PUD. We are responsible for maintaining and repairing the service wires that connect to your building to the electricity distribution system. We also maintain and repair the connectors that link our service wires to your service entrance cables.

    You are responsible for maintaining and repairing the service entrance cables, the weather head, the service mast, the wires inside these devices, and the wires inside the building.

    If your service entrance is damaged, it must be repaired and inspected by the Columbia County Electrical Inspector before we can restore your power.
