Angry Fishing Bridge no electric 2010

NPS is calling and e-mailing people with reservations that Fishing Bridge will not have electrice in 2010. No reason given.
They are seperating the generator users and others in Fishing Bridge.

I understand the electric system was "fried". They aren't sure it will be repaired in 2011 even...sounds like stimulus money could be well spent.

Are they even going to repair it? From a post on another forum, it sounds like they (NPS or Xanterra, the concessionaire) are just going to leave the electrical system as is and not even attempt to repair it.

That's quite likely. It's ancient and in order to replace it they would have to rip up everything, replace pedestals, and ensure that there is enough service coming into the mains to provide enough power. That would entail lots of downtime and loss of revenue. Couple that with the fact the NPS has Xantera's hands tied as to revenue and it's a no-win solution. Add in the fact that the park service has steadily been "greening" things and it doesn't look likely that it'll get fixed anytime too soon. The park is undersized and under plumbed. Ideally a dozer would come in and they could start over. Having a nice modernized park inthat location would be a huge draw.
