Dawson Public Power District is installing new underground power lines in the Lakeview Acres area of Johnson Lake.
The new lines will replace ones that have served the area since the early 1970s. The replacement line is three-phase, which offers increased capacity and options to deliver power to area homes and businesses.
We would like to share some facts about the upgrade:
• Watt’s Electric is the contractor for the project. They plan to complete work in spring of 2014.
• Dawson PPD and Watt’s Electric are taking precautions to avoid hitting underground utilities such as water and sewer lines. However, many of these lines are not documented or marked, making this a challenge.
• When possible, a directional boring machine will be used to install the new lines so the surface of the ground is not disturbed.
• During the construction process, you may experience some outage as we switch to the new lines.
