Manson Fiber Buildout and Electrical Upgrades


PUD fiber and electric crews and contractors are working in the Manson area over the next three months to install fiber internet service. The fiber system uses the wood electrical distribution poles, so the PUD will rebuild the electrical system in some areas in order to bring wood poles into national safety code compliance.
