BEVERLY — High winds, including gusts up to 70 mph, convinced Grant County PUD to halt its drilling tests on the fracture of Wanapum Dam until a safe platform to work from is built.

The design and construction of that platform in the river is expected to take about two weeks, and will delay the testing and eventual repair of the cracked dam. He said it’s not uncommon for the area to experience high winds in the spring.
