Bowie-Cass Electric Cooperative has begun a 2-year project with C.T.& T. Engineering to acquire G.P.S. coordinates for all of our power poles. During this project, members may see C.T.& T. teams walking, or driving the right-of-way as they number the 120,000 poles in the Bowie-Cass system. These teams will be working 12 hour days which will include some weekends as needed to complete this project. The C.T. & T. teams will be wearing high visibility clothing and typically drive white pick-up trucks with logos and signs on the doors.
The information gained from this project will improve the cooperatives mapping system allowing for turn by turn routing, improve our field inventory of materials and equipment, and allow us to communicate with members and callers by use of a pole number to find their locations.
These crews are currently in the area off of the Farmer's Academy Substation in west Mt. Pleasant.
