SaskPower replacement of 8 power poles in Prince Albert National Park

SaskPower is proposing to replace eight 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 for 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 with a flatbed trailer, a bucket 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 holes required for the wood pole replacements.
