Chelan PUD

WENATCHEE - The Chelan PUD employee who died during a crane operating test at Rock Island Dam has been identified.

Edward “Eddie” Bromiley, a technician for Chelan Public Utility District’s Central Maintenance group died Wednesday after he was hit by a piece of steel from the spillway structure.

Bromiley had worked at the PUD since April of 2000. He moved from an apprentice wireman in August of 2003 to a journeyman in October 2004.

Bromiley then moved to being a meter relay technician May 2005 and then the technician position in May 2008.

A flag is flying in his memory outside the PUD’s Tech Shop in Wenatchee and support for his family is ongoing.

“Thursday has been a day of mourning at Chelan PUD. Bromiley’s coworkers across the PUD have been meeting to share memories and grieve,” said the Chelan PUD.

Bromiley's friends and family have put together a community candlelight vigil for him at 7:30 p.m. tonight, June 14, at Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee.
