Document Description
The purpose of the project is to replace an existing deteriorated wood power pole (pole 0/7) with the same size pole in essentially the same location. A new 2-foot diameter hole will be dug immediately adjacent to the existing pole and a new power pole of the same diameter will be set in the hole. Small rock will be used to partially backfill the new hole to provide stability for the new pole in the wetland environment. Spoils from the new hole will be used for the remaining backfill around the new pole. The old pole will be removed and the resulting hole will be backfilled with remaining soil from the new pole installation. The new pole will have the same footprint area as the removed pole so the project will not result in additional permanent impacts to wetlands.
