Ft Gates Area Pole Inspection

September 9, 2019



Hamilton County Electric Cooperative (HCEC) owns and operates an overhead electric distribution line which crosses a portion of your property.  In order to insure for the continued ability to provide reliable electric service to its members, HCEC will have pole inspectors in this area over the next few weeks/months.  The inspectors will be identifying decaying and/or damaged poles, conductor, and other miscellaneous hardware for replacement.


HCEC has contracted the services of Havlak Inspections of Garden City, Texas to assist with the task of pole inspections.  You may observe representatives of this company on foot as it is common practice to park their vehicles and walk rather than try to access the power lines by driving.  ATVs may also be used on larger tracts of land. 


Upon the completion of the inspection process, crews from HCEC will begin replacing suspect poles.  During this time, employees from HCEC may be seeking access to your property and special arrangements may need to be made.  If you are a tenant that resides on this property, I would appreciate your help identifying the land owner or advising them of our intentions.


Should you have any special concerns or wish further confirmation of these individuals at the time of contact, please contact either myself or Brian Geeslin, the Cooperative’s System Engineer at 254-386-3123 or toll free at 800-595-3401.
