Osmose Utilities Services will be performing inspection and maintenance on some of Dixie Electric Power Association’s poles during the next few months, beginning in August and continuing for approximately four to five months. The general areas to be inspected will be the Whistler, Eucutta, West Waynesboro, Clara, Pleasant Grove, Beat Four and Strengthford communities.
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.
