Direct Buried Cable Replacement


In the 1970’s and 1980’s, underground electrical cables were installed using the Direct Buried (DB) method where the cables were installed directly in the ground and covered with dirt.  This type of cable installation is appropriate and safe, but the cable can degrade over time and result in extensive repairs in the event of a failure. 

The purpose of the DB Cable Replacement Program is to replace the direct buried system with a more resilient conduit/duct system to improve the electric service reliability.
