Utility Pole Inspections Underway

​​​​​​​Utility Pole Inspections for SCI REMC to be performed by Osmose Utility Services.

South Central Indiana REMC has contracted with Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. to inspect, test, and treat utility poles within the cooperative’s service area. SCI REMC regularly undertakes the inspection and treatment of its utility poles to maintain the system's safety, reliability, and integrity. Workers will begin inspections the week of November 2, 2020, in the Morgantown, Nashville, Nineveh, and Trafalgar areas, and inspections continue through December.

The inspections involve accessing properties where crews will check poles for structural weaknesses by hammering on the wood and occasionally boring into poles to obtain samples. All Osmose Utility Services employees will be wearing logo shirts, driving vehicles that display the Osmose Utility Services logo, and using ATVs to access areas. Please be careful and watch out for the safety of these workers who will be performing inspections along the roads.

Members with questions regarding Osmose Utility Services inspections are encouraged to call SCI REMC at (765) 342-3344 or toll-free (800) 264-7362.
