I want to put a tool shed or plant some shrubs near my transformer. Are there any guidelines I need to follow?

When you make plans to landscape or make other changes in your yard, please remember these important points regarding EPUD equipment:

  • Obstructing airflow can affect equipment cooling and cause damage
  • Obstructions can cause delays when restoring electric service
  • Do not paint EPUD equipment
  • Do not fence, landscape, or build any structures within 10 feet of the front and three feet from sides and back of EPUD equipment that would restrict access
  • EPUD will remove obstructions that impede work access

If you are unsure if your landscaping plans will interfere with our equipment, give us a call at (541) 746-1583.
