Keep brush & vines back from meters, poles & transformers
The PUD spends lots of time and money keeping trees from growing into power lines. But our crews could use some help from homeowners keeping meters, poles, and transformers clear of brush and vines. In parts of the county, and even Port Townsend, there are meters, ground mounted transformers, and even whole poles covered in blackberries or ivy, or hidden by overgrown grass, bushes, or piles of junk. Not only is this unsightly and potentially unsafe, it prevents PUD crews access in case of emergency.
If you are aware brush or vines covering or blocking PUD equipment, but unsure if it is safe to approach, call to let us know: 360-385-5800.
