This data, stored as a table that may be joined to community boundary (Towns) polygon layers, contains the public Electric, Gas, and Cable (television and perhaps other services) utility providers for each Massachusetts municipality as of May 2008. The source of data for Electric and Natural Gas was the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities as of April 23, 2008. The source of data for Cable utilities was the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Cable as of May 7, 2008.
Also included in the table are data from 2005. Sources of data for Electric and Gas utilities were utility websites and, where necessary, verbal confirmation with the municipality. Data for Cable utilities were provided by the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Energy as of May 12, 2005.
The table is stored as TOWNS_POLY_UTILITIES and may be joined to the Towns from Survey Points (TOWNSSURVEY_POLY) or Towns (TOWNS_POLY) layers on the TOWN_ID field.
