maintenance activities in your area soon. Each year we inspect and treat poles in an
effort to provide more reliable electric service and to enhance public safety. This
environmentally safe and approved process adds to the life of aging poles and prevents
costly premature replacement. The inspection process also allows us to locate poles
that are in need of replacement.
This year we have contracted with QPI&M to inspect and treat approximately 3,300
poles. QPI&M has performed work for us for many years and they are regarded as a
leading expert in the wood preserving industry. Their work trucks will have "WCEC"
identification stickers on them.
This process will begin on April 15; the entire process will be completed in approximately
