OLAMETER to perform hydro pole testing

Monday, September 25, 2017

 Please note that Canadian Niagara Power Inc. “CNPI” has rendered the services of third party contractor Olameter to perform hydro pole testing within CNPI’s service territory. During the period of September to November 2017, CNPI customers south of the QEW and in some sections of Ridgeway may see Olameter workers in and/or around hydro poles, some of which may be located on CNPI customer property, as they test the hydro poles. This pole testing program will continue annually for the next 5 years to facilitate the testing of each pole within CNPI’s distribution inspection area boundaries. The pole testing program is an important part of CNPI’s business as it will provide enhanced asset condition information for all poles while aiding with future budgeting and maintenance planning. Olameter employees will carry identification and a letter from CNPI identifying them as a third party contractor should you have any concerns. CNPI will also update social media as Olameter moves throughout our communities. Thank you.
