Underground cable was first installed in Lethbridge in the late 1960's and has performed very well in our operating and environmental conditions. The original cable was expected to have an estimated lifespan of 20 to 30 years but is now over 40 years old. Our operating policies have allowed us to obtain the additional life from the cable but it has reached the end of its practical lifespan. This project will allow us to enter areas with aged cable and replace the entire area at one time. This is a normal function of any aging asset and will be a continuing project for the next 10+ years. The new cable is constructed with improved designs providing an expected lifespan of 40 - 50 years.
