We’ve posted video on our Facebook page showing some of our lineworkers performing inspections on streetlights. Watch it here.
You can also see it on The Seattle Channel.
Recently City Light has had reports of metal streetlight poles and metal “hand hole” covers (small underground vaults that hold streetlight electrical equipment that are covered by a metal groundplate) that have been energized. In an effort to do everything we can to ensure public safety, City Light will inspect all 20,000 metal streetlight poles and 10,000 metal hand hole covers.
