According to Sidney Jackson, General Manager of Water and Power, placing overhead utility lines below City streets, or "undergrounding," helps beautify Pasadena, reduce the number of outages, enhance public safety, and protect our urban forest. a Beautification and reliability have been at the forefront of a multi-Ii year Capital Improvement Program which began in 1968 with the i Underground Utility District Program. Under this initiative, overhead utility systems, including electric cable and telephone communication lines, are relocated underground.
PWP is currently working on engineering designs for Mountain Street (between Lake and Hill Avenues) and Raymond Avenue (Maple Street to no11h City limits) undergrounding projects. Construction is expected to begin in the 2025 fiscal year (beginning July 2025).
