Power Restored to Grove Field Airport

Washougal WA – October 9, 2014 – The Port of Camas-Washougal announced today that power has been restored to D-Row hangar – which is adjacent to the hangar row lost in the recent fire.   Power has also been restored to the beacon and all runway lighting, and the NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) that restricted runway use to daylight hours only has been lifted.

To clarify access to the Airport grounds, C-Row has been fenced off for safety and to preserve the area during the investigation.  Tenants in all other hangar rows may access their own hangars.

The Port will continue to share information as it comes to light.
