SASKPOWER WOOD POLE INSPECTIONS

May 2022

Please note that SaskPower will be conducting wood pole maintenance inspections in the R.M. of Biggar over the next while.

There are over 1.2 million wood power poles throughout Saskatchewan. To help ensure safe and reliable power, we do annual wood pole inspections to look for damage and decay and carry out maintenance to extend the life of the poles.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

This year, SaskPower contractors will be inspecting over 111,000 wood power poles throughout the province.

We won’t need to disrupt your power to get this work done.

We’re looking for damage, signs of decay and carpenter ant infestation.

Where we can, we repair or reinforce the pole to extend its life and keep it in service. If we can’t repair or reinforce it, the pole will be replaced.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Our top priority is to ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of our crews, while maintaining reliable power.

Our crews will stay within the SaskPower right-of-way as much as possible, but may occasionally need access to your property. They will wear high-visibility clothing and carry identification with them.
