It was a new pole, which had been installed in January. A dog detected the voltage when it sniffed the pole and its owner called it in. City Light says the streetlight had been improperly installed and had frayed wires.</p><p>As a precaution, the utility is inspecting about 60 streetlight poles that were damaged and replaced in the past year. Many of those poles weren&rsquo;t in place when City Light did comprehensive voltage testing last December and January.</p> Wed, 13 Apr 2011 00:32:54 +0000 Dave Meyer 1191 at http://kplu.org Seattle City Light finds another shocking light pole Seattle City Light finds 56 streetlights with voltage issues http://kplu.org/post/seattle-city-light-finds-56-streetlights-voltage-issues <p>Seattle City Light has identified 56 streetlights in the Seattle area that could give off potentially dangerous voltage.&nbsp; That’s the final tally from an <a href="http://powerlines.seattle.gov/2011/01/18/seattle-city-light-completes-streetlight-inspections/">inspection of nearly 37,000 metal streetlights</a> for voltage issues.</p> Wed, 19 Jan 2011 15:08:32 +0000 KPLU News Staff 556 at http://kplu.org Seattle City Light finds 56 streetlights with voltage issues
