Document Description
The purpose of this project is to maintain CAL FIRE's emergency communication system infrastructure (the Cold Spring radio repeater site) in good working order. The project requires replacement of 2,000 feet of burnt electrical wires (powerlines) and replacement of two associated 40-foot power poles, anchors and guy wire. Due to wildland fire impingement, powerlines have sagged to a distance of approximately 8 feet above the ground. To access the powerlines and two poles from Signal Ridge County Road, two seasonal spur roads will require reopening. The slops in the project area range from +/- 30 - 40%. The project shall be implemented during dry, rainless periods when soils are not saturated.
