Seattle City Light is hosting a community meeting this Wednesday evening, Nov. 9, where Blue Ridge/North Beach residents can learn about a project that will extend the life of their underground electrical cables.

In 2009, Seattle City Light began a program of testing and injecting silicone into aging underground electrical cables that feed power to neighborhoods. The process involves first testing the cables to determine their status. Cable found suitable is injected with silicone to force out trapped water and fill cracks in the protective insulation. The process extends the life of the cable about 20 years. To date, 15 neighborhoods have been completed. Blue Ridge/North Beach is the next planned neighborhood.

All affected customers have been mailed an invitation to the meeting. The meeting is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Blue Ridge Community Club, 10040 15th Avenue NW., Seattle.
