Per our safety rules and regulations, we are required to have 10 feet of clearance in front of all underground electrical equipment and 4 feet on all other sides. Labels on the front of all underground equipment list these requirements on equipment buffering. An example is shown below.
Typically, obstructions to our underground equipment are plants and shrubbery. It is imperative that the front of all underground equipment stay clear so that we may obtain access for necessary maintenance and power restoration. Crews will begin this maintenance work soon in your area. Debris from necessary trimming and cutting will be removed and disposed of by our crews.
Thank you for your valued membership. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to provide you the best electrical service possible. If you have questions regarding this upcoming work, please contact us at (803) 684-4248.
