They have been logging every line, every meter, every utility pole, and every transformer in the Central Lincoln system, and the team is almost finished!
Our contractors (photo, right) are done mapping our infrastructure in Depoe Bay, Dunes City, Gardiner, Hauser, Lakeside, Lincoln Beach, Newport, North Bend, Otter Rock, Reedsport, Siletz, South Beach, and Toledo. All they have left to do is part of Florence, Mapleton, Swisshome, Waldport, and Yachats. Our 700-square mile service area includes ten cities, and parts of four counties.
The mapping work is being done using GPS (Global Positioning System) technology. It will help us find problems more quickly when outages happen, and help engineers plan for new development.
