Lacey Oaks Substation Update

The Town of Bartonville continues to keep a close eye on the Lacey Oaks Substation.  The Town recently met with CoServ to better understand the impact of the distribution lines (power lines used to serve homes) leaving the Lacey Oaks Substation.  **These lines do not appear on the Brazos map depicting the substation locations and transmission lines.  

CoServ has confirmed distribution lines from the substation location will be underground to the nearest public road.  Additionally, CoServ plans to use the existing distribution line locations by re-building existing overhead distribution lines that are already located along the public roads to achieve this portion of the project. This will involve replacing the existing poles with new, taller poles and installing more wires on the new poles. CoServ has stated they do not intend to build new lines across private property where no lines exist today.

Brazos and CoServ have delayed their filing with the Texas Public Utility Commission until the end of 2017.  The Town will provide another update at that time.
