Contractor to Inspect Poles
Osmose, a name recognized as a treated wood supplier, will be doing pole inspections for the Cooperative beginning the week of December 8. Crews will be focused on the Grassy and Hastings substations (south of Carbondale east to south of Marion).
Employees will be in vehicles with EECA identification on the side; they will also be carrying a letter of authorization and an ID card. If you have questions, please contact our offices immediately at 800-606-1505.
As part of our reliability plan, poles are inspected and replaced on a regular basis.
