GRAND COULEE — All six of the fire-damaged pump units needed to refill Banks Lake will be fixed by March 1, officials from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation said in a news release.

The John W. Keys III Pump-Generation Plant was damaged by fire Nov. 18. The fire was contained to the south end of the pump plant at Grand Coulee Dam. It damaged a gear in unit 12 that allows the pump to be reversed to generate electricity.
