Town of Natick - Board of Selectmen Minutes 5/8/06

natickma.virtualtownhall.net [cached]

Richard Tobin, Manager of Maintenance and Construction for Nstar, reviewed the numbers.They started with 267 double poles and Nstar installed 151 new poles as part of a maintenance upgrade.79 were removed the other day with 339 remaining.Of the 151 installed, Nstar has already transferred off all but 22. Mr. Hughes asked about the decision to do chunking, and Mr. Tobin responded that in working with the other utilities it was felt this was a way to expedite the process and get the poles removed.Mr. Tobin noted that he had found them as well and he had a crew out doing a sweep.He found in the past before doing the chunking other utilities were cutting them down and leaving them.Mr. Tobin added there were monthly conference calls and they met quarterly and he would bring it (leaving the pieces at the curb) with the other parties.Mr. Tobin thought the crew probably took as much as it could and would come back with a digging crew to pull it out or they had trouble getting it out.Mr. Tobin responded that Nstar did a lot of work in the Town.Mr. Tobin found that to be a difficult question and explained that Nstar's commitment to DTE was to get rid of the oldest poles first.The problem was they were getting rid of the backlog but creating another backlog.Nstar put in 150 poles and didn't wait to transfer their wires plus they came up with the idea of chunking as well as trying alternatives to extend the life of a pole. Ms. Gloff followed up on Mr. Tobin's mention of a commitment to DTE and inquired as to what the oldest was in Natick.Mr. Tobin advised there were approximately 80 poles that were pre 2004. Asked if there were plans to set more poles this year, Mr. Tobin responded that there would be some new poles as far as maintenance and some jobs will require new poles, but nothing major - nothing of the magnitude of the last few years.Mr. Lemnios inquired as to how many poles there were in town and was told by Mr. Tobin there were better than 6,000.Mr. Tobin responded that based on surrounding communities it was about average.He added that a lot had been removed even though there were some pre 2004 and some installed this year have been removed. Mr. Tobin noted that the goal was not to create another backlog.Mr. Tobin's reply was, "no".Mr. Tobin noted there was a double pole data base that was shared by all the utilities and the Town.He believed Nstar could share a report of how many poles were in each court.Asked if Nstar controlled the data base, Mr. Tobin advised that they did not.Mr. Tobin noted that Nstar was only attached to one of the poles on the list and he didn't see an issue to get it removed.


Richard Tobin - Manager, Walpole


"He may have been talking to you, but what he was telling you wasn't helpful," said Dick Tobin, manager of NStar's Emergency Restoration Plan.
NStar has already adopted a community liaison program, tapping existing personnel across a variety of departments to serve as contacts for communities and public safety personnel. These liaisons will have access to a new reporting system that identifies assets and problems in each community in real-time. Tobin said that over the coming months, the capability for communities to directly access this information without the need for a liaison will come online. NStar is making some internal changes on how it communicates information in response to reviews from its regulator, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities, for the response to Irene and the October snow nor'easter. In response to one of five questions posed by the REPC, Tobin said that no Cape NStar crews were redeployed over the bridge. Tobin also said that the company is working to clear legal impediments to information sharing with other investor-owned utilities and operations, such as Comcast. NStar and Comcast have piloted some information sharing regarding pole and power conditions.

During a meeting with selectmen Tuesday night, Dick Tobin, an operations manager for NStar, assured the board significant upgrades were completed two years ago on wires along Hudson Road, which service the Pine Lakes area.If something happens, causing power to go out in the Pine Lakes area, NStar does not have the ability to isolate the outage to a small area, Tobin said.If a power outage occurs in the center of town, the company could re-route electricity from other areas, but because the Pine Lakes area is the end of the line that is not possible.With the utility unable to isolate the problem, outages last longer and affect more residents than a typical incident.Tobin also spoke about what has been causing outages in that area since Memorial Day."There was one during a work stoppage where we had a nor'easter come through," Tobin said.
