Seattle City Light is hosting a community meeting this Tuesday evening, Jan. 17, at which Sheridan Beach customers 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 silicon 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 silicon to fill cracks in the protective insulation. The process, including replacing insulating rubber connectors, extends the life of the cable about 20 years. To date, 17 neighborhoods have been completed. Sheridan Beach is the next planned neighborhood.

Affected customers have been mailed an invitation to the meeting which is scheduled from 7:15-8:15 p.m. at the Lake Forest Park Town Centre at the intersection of Ballinger Way NE and Bothell Way NE. The meeting will be held in the Stadler Room which is the glassed in space immediately adjacent to Kittos restaurant at Third Place Books.
