The Black Mountain Emergency Communications Tower site will undergo general site erosion maintenance and repair from August 7 through August 18, 2017.


The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works announces the Black Mountain Emergency Communications Tower site will undergo general site erosion maintenance and repair from August 7, 2017, through August 18, 2017. The site is located at Black Mountain on U.S. Forest Service land, near the community of Pozo. The tower site provides a vast majority of radio coverage in northern San Luis Obispo County.

During the construction phase, access to the Black Mountain communications site will remain open to all joint users, who currently own/operate communications equipment at the site. Construction activities at the tower site will occur from approximately 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Completion of the erosion repair work will help extend the useful life of a reliable, public safety communications facility that complies with the Board of Supervisor’s priority of a safe community.

The construction work has been authorized by the Department of Public Works, in conjunction with the County Information Technology Department. The communications tower is an integral component of the County’s public safety communication system network. The construction work will be performed by W.F. Garcia & Sons, Inc. of Cayucos, California.
