The remoteness of the service area required special consideration for the preservation method chosen for the steel.The area of service is in Northern California's extreme wilderness near The Lassen National Forest. The environment exposes the seldom used walkways to the weather, elements and harshness that is still an untamed wilderness.
The 18 tons of steel were fabricated into custom walkways to access the very remote Eagle Canyon. Pacific Gas & Electric commissioned the work to serve their very special needs but ended up with the walkways serving a use they initially were not aware of. The walkways were designed to allow PG&E personnel access to check on equipment that is in service at the bottom of the canyon. The walkways, with permission of the owner, have also allowed environmental naturalists entry into a formerly undiscovered habitat where a rare freshwater fish known as the Silver Salmon makes its home.
