Pole Testing in Lewis County
(January 29, 2018 — Centerville, Tennessee) — Beginning in February, Power Pole Maintenance Company will conduct power pole inspections in Lewis County on behalf of Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative. The project, intended to help increase electric service reliability, will likely take several months to complete.
Areas involved in the work include along Highway 20 East, The Farm, south of Main Street, and areas along Highway 412 East to the county line. Additional communities adjacent to these locations could also be involved.
Power Pole Maintenance Company will be in vehicles with an “MLEC Contractor” logo and carry identification cards. The evaluation typically takes a few minutes with some occasional photographs for documentation. The home or business owner does not need to be present, and MLEC will never ask to enter the home.
“With almost daily news stories of scams and break-ins, we want our members to know we understand their questions and cautions when someone unfamiliar comes to their property,” says MLEC System Engineer Brent Warf. “We encourage everyone to contact their local MLEC office whenever there is a question.”
