Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative, Lihue, HI

Early in 2010 Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative Contacted CMS Utility Services to Assist in the Design and Construction of their Pole Yard Located at their Hanapepe power generation plant. The Environmental Protection Agency had issued a citation to Kawai Electric Utility Cooperative for the cleanup of contamination and prevention of future hydrocarbon / creosote pollution resulting from their utility pole storage. CMS utility services Incorporated designed and constructed containment pads for both utility poles and transformers. These pads were equipped with a filtration system to clean the contaminants / hydrocarbons from entering the watershed or groundwater under the poles and transformers. CMS utilized 16-16-2 Pole Racks, 24-24-3 Pole Racks and 32-16-4 Pole racks in the final design and construction.
