This week we received a request from Elders in Pikangikum to utilize wood chips from the Right of Way to make repairs to the winter road. PowerTel made multiple repairs to the road. We used the wood chips where environmental regulations allowed us to and we utilized snow where we couldn't use wood chips.
Furthermore, at the request of community members, PowerTel will only conduct high impact travel and hauling on the winter road at nighttime from now on. The colder temperatures of nighttime travel will help to preserve the winter road for as long as possible as we approach the Spring thaw.
