Planned Power Outage, October 10 at 9:00

There will be a scheduled power outage for Pine Valley on October 10th at 9 a.m. to complete the work on the new line that has been built in Pinto Canyon.  The estimated time for the outage will be 4-5 hours.
Since the June Grass Valley/ Pinto Canyon fire impacting many pole structures and power lines, Dixie has been working very hard to replace much of the destroyed and other structures with significantly improved facilities that benefit all of the Pine Valley area.

September 24--first snow of the season

We knew it was going to be cold, but I think a lot of us were surprised to see snow this morning! Our park looks like a snow garden.

Fuel Reduction to Save Homes

Earlier this summer, the forest service and others met with community members to get their input on a plan that would reduce fuel around the valley with the aim of preventing large fires and also to preserve homes in the event of fire. Below are some videos sent by Bevan Killpack that demonstrate the benefits of fuel reduction to save homes during a wildfire event:

Power Back On!

The power came on during the night last night. Thanks so much to all of the linemen and others who worked so hard to get everything repaired and working again! Thanks also to the firefighters and support people who are still busy working  to control the fire.

Update on the power outage--the line was fixed last night on our end, but there is heavier damage on a further section with at least 5 poles down. The forest service wouldn't allow access last night but the lineman are now in repairing the lines and hope to get power up quickly, maybe by tonight.

Grass Valley Fire

As many of you are aware, there is a serious fire that started in Grass Valley on Friday afternoon and has spread toward Pinto. 

Power could be out for several days-- we don't know for sure but Dixie Power can only do what the fire will permit. 

We've been asked to limit water usage and discontinue watering lawns/ gardens until the power is restored since pumps operate with electricity. 

Because internet will also be out, if you receive posts on your phone, please pass the information on to neighbors who may not know.

Pictures of the Community Cleanup

The community cleanup event on Saturday, May 20 was a great success and hopefully even a little fun for those who participated. We were able to clean up the roadsides and several properties for some residents who needed help. Everyone met at the fire station for assignments and then worked at different jobs for about three hours before returning to the fire station for delicious corn dogs, drinks, chips and watermelon. Thanks everyone who participated! We noticed a lot of other residents were busy cleaning up their own property that weekend so Pine Valley is all cleaned up and ready for summer!
