Sheridan Beach residents to meet with Seattle City Light

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Seattle City Light is planning a maintenance project to extend the life of underground electrical cables in Lake Forest Park.

The work involves a process to inject the cables with silicon, which spreads to fill cracks in the insulation. Rubber connectors around the wires are replaced.

City Light believes that this process will extend the life of the cables by 20 years.

The utility has completed 17 neighborhoods. The next planned area of work is in the cables that serve the Sheridan Beach neighborhood.

Planned outages are required for the work. Customers will be notified on the Thursday afternoon prior to the next week’s planned outages via a door hanger on the front door. Outages typically last eight hours. Outages will not occur on consecutive days. The maximum number of outages you might experience during this phase of the project is usually no more than three. Many times work will be completed with one outage.

Seattle City Light is hosting a community meeting Tuesday January 17, 2012 for Sheridan Beach customers to learn about the project. The meeting will be held in the Stadler Room of Third Place Commons, next to Kitto's Restaurant.

Third Place is on the upper level of LFP Towne Centre at the intersection of Ballinger and Bothell Way.
