Local resident Linda Cutsforth took this photo of sub-contractors for B.C. Hydro replacing spacer dampers near Burns Lake on Feb. 20, 2015.

Spacer dampers hold the individual sub conductor transmission lines apart and keep the overhead lines from contacting each other in stormy weather and causing outages.

The new spacer dampers have high grade rubber to absorb the impact of inclement weather and extend the lifespan of the lines.
