Osmose Utilities Services will be performing inspection and maintenance on some of Dixie Electric’s poles. This began in August and is continue for several months. The general areas to be inspected will be the Clara, Buckatunna, Progress, Denham, Winchester and Chicora communities and the industrial park.
This work will generally consist of excavating a hole about 18” deep around the poles to inspect them and applying a preservative and/or remedial treatment to the poles as needed. The purpose of the inspection and treatment is to identify poles that do not meet industry strength standards and to extend the useful life of all others.
If you have any questions, please contact the engineering department at (601) 425-2535.
