Over the past three decades, OCA crews have performed various power lines surveys.


OCA has conducted numerous surveys to accommodate upgrades of existing electric powerlines as well as the construction of new lines for firms such as Sierra Electric Cooperative of Truth or Consequences, NM, Central New Mexico Electric Cooperative, Inc., and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

This research resulted into the following publications:
