4-County to Begin Pole Inspections in Oktibbeha County

Posted by Steve Rogers | July 17, 2012 / 08:42am | Local News, Business
Inspection and treatment of wooden 4-County electric poles is set to begin in the Adaton area of Oktibbeha County west of Starkville. The work is being performed by contract workers with Osmose. These workers will inspect and treat every wooden 4-County pole and the work will require digging around those poles, which means Osmose employees will be working in member' yards. The workers will be clearly identified with Osmose on their clothing, and trucks will have 4-County contractor signs as well.

4-County Manager of Engineering Lynn Timbrook says the work is part of an overall plan to inspect and treat every pole in the 4-County system. "Our plan calls for every one of our poles to be inspected and treated on a 10-year cycle. We do this to identify any poles that need to be replaced and to extend the lives of those poles that remain in service. This helps on reliability and safety issues and keeps costs down for our members," said Timbrook.

The Oktibbeha County pole inspections are scheduled to begin Monday, July 23, and should continue for two to three months. The work will be done along the Association's Adaton substation circuits.
