As part of Central Electric Cooperative's (CEC's) ongoing effort to improve system reliability, contracted pole inspection crews will be inspecting poles on circuits originating from Cowansville substation in Armstrong County, and Clearfield substation in Butler County.
CEC's contractor, Osmose Utilities Services, Inc., (Osmose) will begin work on March 13, 2022. CEC members and others with CEC's electric poles on their property may see these inspections being conducted. Inspections typically include a visual inspection, sounding of the pole with a hammer, and excavation up to 18 inches around the base of the pole. Poles identified as having issues will either be addressed in the field by Osmose, or by CEC personnel at a later time. All Osmose representatives and CEC employees carry company-issued identification. CEC respects property owners' rights and will complete the work required as quickly and professionally as possible.
The project will last several months. If you have any questions or comments, please contact CEC's Bill Betros, assistant manager of operations, at 800-521-0570 x 2209.
CEC appreciates your patience and cooperation during these improvements.
