PG&E predicts outage Tuesday, impacting Meadow Valley, FRC and some Quincy customers

UPDATE 3:10 p.m. for the Feather River College blackout portion:

The following will be in effect from 8 a.m. to noon tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30:

  • All interior lectures and laboratory classes are canceled from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • All Outside activity classes can continue to meet
  • Classroom teachers should plan an alternative teaching activity, if possible
  • Faculty, staff, and support services management should work with their supervisor to obtain instructions to work from campus as much as possible and if it is safe, or to work from an alternate location.

As of now, we plan to fully open the campus at noon tomorrow.

A notice will be sent by 10:30 a.m. tomorrow updating the campus to this noon opening if power outages continue.


A second notice will be sent around 3 p.m. regarding the status of evening classes.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story said the FRC would be closed for the day, but FRC Chairman Kevin Trutna said that after further investigation it appears only one yard of the college’s 13 yards could be affected. They are working to determine which part of the college will be affected and will provide an update.

Original story: PG&E has scheduled a scheduled power outage on Tuesday, August 30, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., for about 340 customers — almost all in Meadow Valley, but also some in Quincy, including Feather River College. (FRC President Kevin Trutna said the college is studying which areas would be affected and that information will be updated.)

The shutdown is necessary so that PG&E crews can safely install new equipment on the 1600 block of Bucks Lake Road.


PG&E sent letters to affected customers two weeks ago.
