As part of the ongoing maintenance program, 230 hydro poles will be replaced in P.G.
In total, BC Hydro will be replacing 12 thousand hydro poles across the Province over the coming months.
Hydro poles normally last between 40 and 50 years, and can become weak over time because of adverse weather conditions, insects and wildlife.
In some cases, power will need to be disconnected to complete a pole replacement, customers will be advised of a pending power interruption either in person, by mail or by phone.
