OPALCO raises concerns over CenturyLink cable break [telecom]

A CenturyLink underwater fiber cable could break, anytime, because the cable is fraying.

By Hayley Day

That's what Gerry Lawlor, of Rock Island, and Joel Mietzner, of OPALCO, explained during the public comment section of the Jan. 10 San Juan County Council meeting.

It could also break when OPALCO works on the power cable from Lopez to San Juan Island in June. CenturyLink has tied their cable to OPALCO's with rope and wire to keep it up, said Mietzner. When OPALCO employees fix their cable, it could compromise the one CenturyLink attached to it.
