Subcontractor Working on Our Poles in Rainier

Rainier customers may have noticed an unfamiliar company working on our power poles lately. This work is for Comcast Cable, which is replacing cable in the Rainier area.
Comcast hired Sefnco, a subcontractor, to remove the old cable system and install a new system. They're also trimming trees in the area.
If you have any questions or concerns about the work performed on our poles, contact our Engineering Department at (503) 397-0760 or by email.
