Document Description
SMUD proposes surface preparations and coating of three 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line steel poles. The heights of the poles are 95 feet. The poles were originally installed in the late 1970's and the coating to be removed contains heavy metals. The existing coasting of the poles be will be removed with full containment system prior to the recoating work. Analytical testing on similar utility poles indicate trace amounts of heavy metals. Once removed all coating with be testing for hazardous waste characterization and managed in accordance local, state, and federal regulations for hazardous waste management. For the initial refinishing of thee poles, it will be necessary to remove the layers of all coatings down to exposed steel to eliminate rust and ensure appropriate adhesion and life of the paint re-coating. The 115kV lines will be de-energized for the recoating work. The pole locations are located directly adjacent to the RT Gold Line East Sacramento Corridor. The trains will remain in operations with the use of flaggers who will work corporately with the pole maintenance crews. Maintenance will occur approx. between the hours of 7AM and 7PM. *See NOE for full details.
