Brewster begins RV park electrical and water service upgrades


Brewster public works personnel excavate one of 23 sites at the Columbia Cove RV Park that will get new 50-amp service and improved water facilities between now and next spring.
“There wasn’t enough power coming in from the PUD,” said Webster, “so we had to have a new larger transformer and breaker panels installed before we could begin.”

BREWSTER – The city’s public works department recently began a project to improve the utility services for users of the Columbia Cove RV Park adjacent to the community pool.
“We are putting in all new electrical services and installing new water services,” said Public Works Director Lee Webster.
There are 23 sites with 30-amp service in the older portion of the RV Park that was built in the mid-1980’s by Webster’s estimate. Those sites are being upgraded to 50 amps to keep pace with increased demands from the new models of recreational vehicles.
“There wasn’t enough power coming in from the PUD,” said Webster, “so we had to have a new larger transformer and breaker panels installed before we could begin.” 
Webster said the completed project will include all new services, wires, breakers and panels. 
“We have six excavated and installed now, but not hooked up yet,” said Webster. “The other 17 will have to wait until early spring.”
The RV Park has 29 full hook-up sites adjacent the pool, and five power-only sites next to the cove that are 50 amps already, Webster said.
The RV Park is a particular favorite among vacationers and fishermen, especially during the summer months and salmon season when spaces are usually booked well in advance.
