SaskPower Stabilization of 3 Power Poles in Waskesiu

SaskPower is proposing to replace guy cables and if necessary, replace anchors on three existing wood poles in order to maintain the integrity of power service for existing customers in the park.
The project may require a small amount of vegetation clearing in order to access the structures, complete the required maintenance, or for safety purposes. The project is required to maintain the integrity of power service to existing customers in the park.
Equipment that is expected to be used for completion of the Project includes: a rubber-tired back-hoe, a digger boom truck, and a crew truck. Access to components of the Project will make use of existing park roads and SaskPower rights-of-way (ROW). Surface disturbance is expected to be minimized to the associated pits required for anchor replacement if needed.
