DMEA Inspecting Power Poles for Reliability

May 13, 2024

Annual poles inspection work begins in Delta County May 13

Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) is now inspecting power poles in the North Fork area in Delta County. The inspections are expected to last throughout the spring. DMEA is contracting with SBS Inspections to conduct the work.

SBS Inspections may need to access members’ properties by vehicle, ATV, or on foot in order to complete the inspections. Their vehicles will be clearly marked with DMEA contractor labels. DMEA asks for its members’ cooperation in allowing contractors access to poles located on private property.

The co-op will inspect more than 5,500 poles as part of its power reliability and system maintenance program. For more information about DMEA’s pole inspection process or property access, contact Wade Wilson, Line Superintendent at 970-240-6897 or
