Power lines going down!

Not a cause for alarm, but celebration! After many months of hard work routing the power underground, the aged power lines along the Lagoon are being removed. Also known as the “killer wires,” the above ground power lines killed six Trumpeter Swans since 2014 and other birds. The cost to go underground vs replacement above ground was equivalent with the added benefit of complying with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

Many thanks to the City of Seward Electric crew for this tremendous improvement!
