Benton PUD Conducting a Utility Pole Audit
Benton PUD has over 24,000 electric transmission and distribution utility poles located throughout Benton County. The poles not only support the wires and equipment used to deliver power, they also provide space for telephone and cable service providers. Benton PUD has contracted with Osmose Utilities Services to perform an audit of the space rented by telephone and cable service providers on our poles. The audit began in June 2014 and is scheduled to take up to two years to complete. Click here for more information.
