AMP to Perform Maintenance Work on Utility Poles
ALAMEDA, CA – Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) contractors will be out in the community in March and April to assess and maintain utility poles.
To maintain reliable electric service, workers from Intec Services, AMP’s pole maintenance contractor, will visually inspect poles, perform pole reinforcements, and in some cases, dig around the pole to straighten steel reinforcements. Pole reinforcements should not interrupt electric service.
Intec Services technicians will wear hard hats, safety vests, and carry Alameda Municipal Power contractor badges, which they will present upon request. In some neighborhoods, utility poles are located in backyards and technicians will need to gain access to customers’ property. Technicians do not need to enter customers’ homes.
All field work will be done between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work will begin the first week of March and continue through mid-April. AMP customers do not need to be home for pole inspections. If a utility pole cannot be accessed, AMP will schedule an inspection visit for a future date. Customers who have any questions about the project can contact AMP at (510) 748-3900.
Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is a department of the city of Alameda that has served residents and businesses for 131 years. AMP provides power to more than 34,000 customers at rates that average 16 percent below neighboring communities.
