"We had tried for several years to get funding for this, but were not successful until we had a near miss issue where there was some excavation to take place. And fortunately, the people that were out there questioned the drawing and they discovered it was an older version and there had been other work in the area in the past. If they had dug where they were planning to, it would've resulted in digging up power lines, which we consider a bad thing."
Ray Kastle Associate Director, Supply Chain
