All in a Day’s Work
Earlier this spring, several power poles were replaced by SDCEA crews working in the Cotopaxi and Texas Creek area. Poles used in this particular project were 40-feet high, weighed about 900 pounds each and were set in six-foot deep holes dug by the crew for this purpose.
Work took place in rocky, steep canyon terrain with little room to rig and raise the new poles. Linemen must safely install poles around obstacles and energized lines. The power supply was rerouted so residents in the area did not lose power during the several-day project.
