Crews Inspecting for Ground Shifting
July 20, 2017
The recent dry weather has caused some ground shifting in Regina. Ground shifting is where the ground pulls away from houses and pulls underground cables away from power boxes. It can cause damage and outages.
Starting tomorrow, our crews will be performing visual inspections in several areas of Regina that usually see significant ground shift. We'll be focusing on areas that have underground service and older houses.
If you're curious and want to check your own power box, look for:
- The power box tilting to one side;
- Wires being pulled out from under the power box; or
- A new and significant gap between the ground and the house near your power box.
