These images show how the severed American Transmission Company cables were permanently capped. A permanent metal cap was soldered to the end of the cable (from left), and layers of sealants were added to provide more protection. Finally, the outer wires were banded together with metal clamps. Concrete mats were placed on the ends of the cables to hold them in place, until ATC develops a plan to remove the cables permanently. (Photographs courtesy American Transmission Company) 10p3.jpg
