Skamania PUD will undergo an extensive utility network mapping project starting in 2014, which is expected to take a year to complete. The project will be conducted by contractors.
You may notice workers using handheld computers looking at the utility poles and equipment in your neighborhood during the project. They will also be accessing the meter at each home and business.
The large-scale mapping project will provide the PUD with specific GPS locations of all of its electrical equipment, and those locations will be used to create a GIS database to help better manage the system and provide efficient service to our customers.
