We will be replacing portions of the existing fence around the Meadowlark Substation, located at 15404-84 Avenue. See map on the right.
Why is the fence being replaced?
By adding additional safeguards to the existing substation we can enhance the safety and security of critical electricity infrastructure and continue to provide you with safe and reliable power service.
Electricity infrastructure is potentially hazardous, and the proposed new wall is an additional safety measure for residents in the area.
What will the new wall look like?
The new wall portions will be made out of concrete with a ledgestone finish. To enhance the aesthetics of the new wall and to incorporate the look of the community, the ledgestone finish will be similar in colour to other buildings in the area. The picture below is a sample of what the wall colour may look like.
The new wall sections will be in approximately the same location as the existing fence, as shown on the map. The new wall sections will be 10 feet high and the sections of the fence that we are not replacing will remain chain link.
