LREC Pole Inspections Underway


RAM Utilities are conducting Lake Region Electric Cooperative’s annual pole inspections this year. Each crew will be wearing clothing


that will identify them as being em- ployed by RAM Utilities. The trucks they will be driving will also be marked with LREC magnet logos on the doors. The crews will use ATV’s to move from one pole to the next. They will look for pole decay, damage, woodpecker holes, loose and/or missing hardware that is in need of attention. If the pole is found to be in need of replacement, they will mark the pole so that it is easily identi- fied.


Some of the communities and major roads they will be working on or near are as follows: Indian Road, Tenkiller


2013 Right-of-Way Clearing has Started In the interest of protecting our


members from electrical hazards and providing reliable electrical service, we will be


clearing right-of-way


along our electric lines. Lake Region Electric Cooperative has contracted with Northeast Rural Services (NRS) and Asplundh to as- sist in the 2013 tree trimming plan, which will include trimming several miles of electric line. During the next few months, NRS will be working in the Hulbert, Lost City, and Clear Creek area. Asplundh will be working in the Norwood, Ft. Gibson Dam, and Ft. Gibson area. LREC’s in house right-of-way crews will be cutting and clearing service orders and new services. Keeping 191201 the right-of-way


clear around electrical lines helps prevent outages and blinks (a minor disruption in service lasting only a

few seconds) by eliminating the pos- sibility of vegetation or tree limbs coming in contact with our electric lines.


Not only do downed lines cause outages, they can also result in severe injury or death when lines are still energized. Stay away from downed lines and call the coopera- tive immediately. The right-of-way clearing will in- clude cutting, mowing, and spraying 15 feet from a single phase line and 20 feet from a three phase line. You can help us provide safe, reliable, and affordable electricity by planting trees and vegetation that are clear of our lines. If you have any questions con-
