Additionally, it is predicted that this winter could be very challenging.

ElecComm Crews Help Restore Power in NY

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 12, 2012

An electric line construction company from Wilmington, Mass., has been helping fix storm damage in New York City.

Crews from ElecComm worked Thursday to inspect the flooded, muck-filled utility tunnels that carry current to the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens.

Before they descended into the manholes, a worker from New York based Bancker Construction used a 3,400 gallon vacuum truck to suck up the sand that coated the underground cables.

Ed Sellman says the cleaning process helps ensure that crew members are not "working in mud like pigs." It also helps them see what they're doing.

Workers need to visually inspect as much of the underground electrical system as they can for damage before the cables are re-energized.

It's slow, painstaking work.
