Utility Pole Inspections
Quanta Utility Engineering Services (QUES), as a contractor of Southwest TN EMC, started inspecting poles August 29, 2019.
They are driving a white utility vehicle and UTVs with a flashing caution light on top. The vehicle has the name “QUES” on the door. All personnel will have ID cards showing employment with QUES.
They will be conducting these inspections over the next several months in the following areas (times are estimates based on the quantity of poles on each circuit):
- April 2020 – Covington area – Henning 204 – Hwy 87, Hwy 371, Cooper Creek Road, Henning-Orysa Road, Durhamville Road, and the surrounding areas served by these lines
- May and June 2020 – Atoka area – Atoka 244 and Atoka 254 – Marshall Road, Hwy 51 South, McLaughlin Drive, Tralee Drive, Kilkenny Drive, Munford Giltedge Road, Beaver Road, Munford Atoka Avenue, and the surrounding areas served by these lines
QUES will be inspecting approximately 9,000 poles per year for the next ten years in order to cover our entire field inventory. The inspections will include an excavation and treatment of STEMC utility poles in order to prolong the life of the utility pole by an average of 25-30 years. This is a cost-effective method of extending the life of these STEMC assets, saving the members money. Therefore, it makes our system more reliable, safe and affordable.
