Wood Pole Inspections

Why Wood Pole Inspections Are Necessary

BWP has a strong and reliable electric system and we proactively do work to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our

customers and employees. Wood poles are an important part of our electric system so we're systematically inspecting

over 5,000 wood poles in Burbank over the next three years. Approximately 3,000 poles were inspected this year between

March and July.

 

Here's What You Need to Know:

1. Inspections help determine the remaining life of each pole and if treatments are needed to improve the quality of the wood.
2. Osmose may need to enter your yard in order to reach a pole for inspection.
3. The inspection may involve testing a part of the pole under the ground which may disturb a small area around the pole.
