(CUC) — The Commonwealth   Utilities  Corp. regularly performs   tree-trimming  and  vegetation   control   around  its  power  transmission    and  distribution infrastructure    in  order  to  minimize   the  chance   of  a  power   interruption   during   any  kind  of environmental   event,  typhoon,  high winds,  and heavy rains.   

A recent agreement  was made with Saipan Mayor David Apatang  and Docomo Pacific   CNMI  to collaborate  with CUC to perform  vegetation management  on the electrical   grid and digital   cable  throughout  the island,   which will  kick-off  on Tuesday,   Oct.  13,   2020 starting  on Isa  Drive,  Saipan.

Tree-trimming  will  be done  on the high  voltage  primary  and secondary  transmission   systems where power lines  and Docomo  Pacific's   digital  cable  are suspended.   

This work will be performed to protect  the integrity  and  reliability    of both  power  grid  and cable  service.   

The  collaboration identifies  the importance  of these  systems  and  assuring  resiliency  and  better  quality   of service.

This is  one of the many ways that can build,  maintain  and share the cost of long-term   maintenance on these vital  service  links.

In the event  that a power  interruption  is  required   then all protocols   will be followed  accordingly to ensure  that the community   is  informed  in  advance.   

“I would  like  to extend  my appreciation   to both   Mayor   Apatang   and   Docomo   Pacific   CNMI    for   assisting     in   protecting   our   critical infrastructure  and community,” CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.
