Overhead Line Rehabilitation

Every year, Peterborough Utilities schedules overhead power lines rehabilitation in selected areas of the city. The typical scope of work is to install new poles, insulators, wires, and transformers. Once the new poles are installed the overhead wires, transformers, and other equipment are transferred onto the new poles.OH Line Rehab

What should Homeowners & Businesses expect?

Area residents may be affected by temporary power outages as the transformers are relocated. Prior to construction, any residents that will be affected by the work will be notified by mail. Any residents affected by power outages will be notified by phone at least 24 hours in advance. Notices will be posted regularly via social media and annually on our website.

For affected homeowners, please note the following:

During the course of construction, we endeavour to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. We ask if you could please avoid parking automobiles on the street during construction.

Traffic detours, when necessary, will be in place during the construction periods with local/emergency traffic and garbage collection permitted.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

After hours construction emergency calls should be directed to 705-748-9300
