In September 2016, Seattle City Light worked to upgrade about a mile of aging electrical cable in parts of Lake Forest Park through a process called silicone injection.

The silicone injection is intended to fill cracks in the cable insulation to prevent outages.

This work extends the life of the cable for an additional 25 years and improves electrical reliability.

Seattle City Light’s contractor, Novinium, recently completed the testing and cable injection as of late September 2016.

Roughly 50 percent (about half a mile) of the underground cable was suited to injection, while the remaining 50 percent of cable will need to be replaced at a later date.
