The Effectiveness of Inspection: A Comprehensive Comparison of Power Pole Assessment Techniques

The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the effectiveness of various traditional wood utility pole inspection methods in identifying “reject” poles compared to a full excavation inspection. These traditional inspection methods can range from simple visual inspections to more involved partial excavations. Previous research and historical results have provided estimates of the effectiveness of these methods, but this study was conducted to reevaluate these estimates with a more involved process at a scale never before seen.
