(a) Permitted. When requested, the department shall temporarily disconnect,
remove and later
reinstall an overhead service drop for the purpose of allowing the property owner to trim or
remove trees, erect structures or perform other acts upon his property which, due to the location
of the service drop, cannot safely and expediently be done with the service drop in place.
(b) Request, liability of applicant. The request for such work shall
be submitted to the
department at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the time the removal is desired. It shall be the
responsibility of the party requesting this work to arrange with all customers affected for a
service interruption. The department assumes no responsibility for damage or inconvenience
caused by the interruption of service.
(c) Point of attachment. It shall be the property owner's responsibility
to provide the
department with a suitable point of attachment for reinstallation, meeting the same requirements
as those for a new service drop. (See Section 27-90.)
(d) Charges. The charge for removal and reinstallation of a single-phase
service drop shall be
fifty dollars ($50.00)
. For three-phase service drops, the charge shall be the actual costs incurred
by the department in removing and reinstalling such service, including the cost of labor, material
necessitated by the reinstallation, engineering, supervision and overhead.
