Osmose Utilities Services will be performing inspection and maintenance on some of Dixie Electric Power Association’s poles during the next year, beginning in August and continuing for approximately four months. The general areas to be inspected will be the Petal, Runnelstown, Richton, Sunrise, Indian Springs, McSwain, and New Augusta areas.
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.
All Osmose contract workers will be identifiable by their yellow and orange Osmose work vests and hard hats. Osmose vehicles should be marked with Osmose Utility decals as well as a Dixie Electric Power Association “Contractor” decals.
