Pole Maintenance


August 22, 2017

This important message is to inform you that Wharton County Electric Cooperative may be performing maintenance activities in your area soon. Each year we inspect and treat wood poles in an effort to provide more reliable electric service and to also enhance public safety. This environmentally safe and approved process adds to the life of aging poles and prevents costly premature replacement. The inspection process also allows us to locate poles that are in need of replacement.

This year we have contracted with QPI&M to inspect and treat approximately 3,000 poles. QPI&M has performed work for us for many years and they are regarded as a leading expert in the wood preserving industry. Their work trucks will have "WCEC" identification stickers on them.

This process will begin on September 5 and the entire process will be completed in approximately (60) days.

This year we will be working in areas from NE of El Campo to Friendly Corners, Crescent, Glen Flora, Mackay, the Hobbin Oaks subdivision, and near Wharton.

Please refer to the attached map showing the affected areas highlighted in yellow.

Please give these work crews your cooperation and assistance in this very important maintenance project. The end result will improve your electric service. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Wesley Lange or Richard Arnett at 979 543-6271.
