S & L Pole Testing will Begin Pole Testing Soon



S & L Pole Testing will be performing utility pole tests next week. They will finish a small area in the southwestern part of Blaine township in Cuming County and the southeastern part of Pilger township in Stanton County. They will also be working in the eastern part of Kingsburg township in Stanton County and Wisner, Beemer and Elkhorn townships. This will also include the town of Beemer in Cuming County in the Cuming County Public Power District service area.

Work is to begin Monday, March 6th and will take a few weeks in each area. You will see S & L Pole Testing pick-ups and ATV’s along the country roads. Please be aware of these workers and drive carefully.

Most utility poles are made of wood and their constant exposure to the environment takes a toll. Wind, moisture and soil conditions all can distress or decay wood. Regular pole inspection and treatment helps to spot and take care of any problems before they become critical situations.

S & L Pole Testing is a professional firm out of Columbus, Nebraska that is an expert in pole evaluations. Employees from S & L will be identifiable by company logos, equipment, shirts and hard hats and will carry identification.
