Lake Country Power has hired Osmose Utilities Services, Inc., to test its poles in the western locations of the Grand Rapids service area, such as Bena, Onigum, Remer, etc. The objective is to identify poles that may no longer be fit for service, which is in the best interest of safety and electric reliability. Osmose will mark the poles for LCP crews to replace. Osmose will drive pickups, four-wheelers or will be on foot. The testing will not require interruption of electrical service. The testing will begin June 14 and go through October.
