CARE IS TAKEN TO MINIMIZE THE EFFECTS OF THIS PROJECT ON OUR CUSTOMERS
- Customers will be notified 2-3 days prior to a planned power outage, and experience an estimated 4-6 hour interruption.
- Utility locates (coloured paint on the ground) showing existing utility cable and pipe location, must be done before excavation begins, including utilities on private property (hydro & gas).
- Excavations will be back-filled or suitably covered daily.
- Trenching is required along the city boulevard and roadway to install new cables, resulting in the need to excavate some driveway aprons.
- Driveways and sidewalks will be temporarily repaired with crushed stone or cold mix asphalt, and then properly resurfaced with hot asphalt/concrete. If you plan to have your driveway resurfaced during the course of this project, please contact us to coordinate the work.
- All areas with existing grass will be restored with new sod at the end of the project.
- Major work and cleanup will be done on a street-by-street basis.
