Belmont Municipal Light Department (BMLD) needed to upgrade their aging substation and power distribution system to improve reliability and prepare for future demands. Working with Eversource, the area’s electric service provider, BMLD oversaw construction of a new substation in Belmont and a 0.8 mile, 115kV transmission line between the new substation and the existing Eversource substation in Cambridge. SGH provided civil and geotechnical consulting services associated with alignment design and construction of the underground transmission line.
