AD Edmonston Pumping Plant (EDPP) Surge Tank Utility Pole Replacements
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
A recent storm bent and/or broke 3 wooden utility poles on the electrical line that runs from EDPP up to the EDPP surge tank. Upon further inspection it was determined that six total poles needed replacement. Because of the remote location, 3 of the poles will need to be placed by helicopter. The other three poles will be placed using ground equipment. Power to the surge tank was shut off until repairs are made and it is currently running on a generator. The repairs need to get done in order to restore power to the surge tank and return to normal operation.
