Franklin PUD's Engineering Department has a broad range of responsibilities. For instance, our Field Engineers maintain records and maps of all facilities throughout our service area. This means they know where all our poles, transformers, wiring, meters, street and security lights are located. Design engineering for new line extensions to homes, businesses and irrigation pumps as well as improvements to the distribution system are also important functions of our Engineers. They meet with customers to review construction plans and inspect customer installations for conformance to specifications. Our System Engineers track load growth and forecast needs for new substations or larger wiring to meet our customers' increasing electrical requirements. They also monitor operation of our substations with a SCADA system.
