PG&E to bury power lines

Last week, PG&E announced it would rebuild all electric distribution lines underground in Paradise and parts of Magalia and the surrounding areas that are rebuilding after the Camp Fire.

The build-out will occur over five years “[d]ue to the amount of engineering, design and construction” needed, according to a PG&E press release. In the meantime, temporary overhead service is being installed. At the same time, PG&E will replace 74 miles of damaged natural gas lines underground.

PG&E will host a wildfire safety open house from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 12 at the Chico Elks Lodge. Topics include emergency preparedness, safety inspections and infrastructure plans. Go to pge.com/wildfiresafety for more information.
