Spring Safety

As spring approaches after a long winter, many of us are itching to get outdoors to work or play. As these outdoor activities start, be aware of overhead power lines and where they are located in relationship to your activities.

Tree trimming, antenna installations and ladders are of particular concern. If a line appears too close to the area in which you are working, please call Wasco Electric Cooperative for assistance to evaluate the situation before you start working.

If you plan any kind of excavation project, Oregon law requires that you contact the Oregon Utility Notification Center at 811 at least two business days before you dig. The notification center will notify us, and we will locate and mark any Wasco Electric-owned underground wires in the area to be excavated.


One free, easy call gets your utility lines marked AND helps protect you from injury and expense.
