The objective of this project is to create an overhead distribution system inspection and maintenance guide that will help Utilities identify effective practices with respect to inspection and maintenance activities. The effective practices will be determined from a review of Utilities current practices combined with past work of CEATI and an expert knowledge of the current international experience and expert view of potential future activities. Where applicable, reference should be made to Canadian and US standards and regulations.
It is expected that this guide will serve as a reference document for Utilities to consult about best practices for inspection and maintenance activities. In addition; it is expected that the guide can be used for personnel training purposes for maintenance and other Utility workers.
