SaskPower Poles Replacement in Prince Albert National Park near south west boundary.

SaskPower is proposing to replace a pole within a watercourse surrounded by a fen. Once replaced, double steel stubs anchors will be installed to support the pole. To access the project location, SaskPower requires that a minor amount of vegetation and regenerating trees/shrubs be cleared. The vegetation clearing will take place along the existing overhead power easement for a distance of approximately 250 metres (m) extending generally southeast of the structure replacement location.

Equipment that is expected to be used for completion of the Project includes: a tracked digger unit (i.e., nodwell), back-hoe, and crew trucks. Access to components of the Project will make use of existing roads, trails, and the power easement. Vegetation clearing is expected to be completed with a tracked drum mulcher and/or hydroaxe mower but may be limited to hand-slashing with saws to accommodate equipment access.

Latest update
