Hay River and Fort Resolution are back on hydro after switching to diesel following a Saturday outage, the NWT Power Corporation says.

The communities are ordinarily supplied by the Taltson hydro system but lost transmission from Taltson for much of Saturday.

As of 4:30pm on Saturday, the corporation said power in both communities had been switched to diesel.


By midnight, following a patrol of the transmission line, hydro had been restored.

On Friday, high wind and falling branches were blamed for a series of outages affecting parts of Fort Smith.
