Louisiana Overhead Power Line Safety Act

Entergy reminds you that, in the interest of worker and public safety, federal and state laws regulate the activities of those who work near overhead power lines.

Louisiana Overhead Power Line Safety Act

Louisiana law (LRS 45:141-146) prohibits unauthorized persons from working, including moving equipment, within ten feet of any high voltage overhead electric utility line.

If any unauthorized person intends to work within ten feet of any high voltage overhead electric utility line, the person responsible for the work to be done must notify the owner or operator of the high voltage overhead electric utility line not less than forty-eight hours prior to commencing work.

Work shall be performed only after satisfactory mutual arrangements have been completed between the owner or operator of the high voltage overhead electric utility line and the person responsible for the work to be done.

To notify Entergy that you intend to work within ten feet of a high voltage overhead electric utility line owned or operated by it, please call 1-800- ENTERGY (1-800-368-3749).
