Superintendent to provide details on streetlight review effort

SEATTLE Last month a dog stepped on an energized metal plate covering a small streetlight vault on Queen Anne Avenue. Late Monday, City Light received a call from a customer in the High Point area who was concerned that there might be a faulty streetlight in her neighborhood.

We received a call from a customer who believed that a streetlight in her neighborhood may not be working properly, says Superintendent of City Light Jorge Carrasco. Crews investigated the streetlight on Tuesday, found that there were exposed wires in the lamphead and immediately repaired it. There was no damage or injury associated with this malfunctioning streetlight.

Superintendent Carrasco will brief the media on the plans City Light has to inspect and to make repairs, if necessary, to any of the 20,000 metal streetlight poles and 10,000 metal hand holes (small streetlight vault covers) in the utilitys service territory.

Specific questions will be addressed at Thursdays media briefing.
