Pole Attachments

UEC’s Pole Attachment Procedures and Guidelines (available here) includes the processes, procedures, and guidelines necessary for cable and telecommunication facility owners and operators (“occupants”) to attach their facilities to overhead distribution facilities (“poles”) owned by the Umatilla Electric Cooperative.

These processes, procedures, and guidelines will facilitate a timely completion of an attachment project with minimal delays or conflicts. These procedures and guidelines shall at all times be subject to, and are not intended to supersede, amend or replace, the terms and conditions of the required Pole Attachment Agreement between UEC and an occupant.

  • These procedures and guidelines do not apply to any attachments to be made to UEC structures carrying transmission lines of 69kV or higher.
  • These procedures and guidelines also shall not apply to the attachment of 5G wireless facilities or any electric facilities.
