WPSC – Consumer Safety Information - Proposition 65
This wood has been preserved by pressure treatment with an EPA-registered pesticide to protect it from termite attack and decay. The following precautions should be taken both when handling the treated wood and in determining where to use and dispose of the treated wood.
The ET® utility pole treatment combines the longevity and cleanliness of CCA-treated wood utility poles with the climbability of oil-impregnated utility poles. The ET® utility pole treatment is an oil emulsion applied to the outer layer of the utility pole following treatment with Wolmanac®CCA. The oil-based treatment serves as a lubricant, making the utility pole easier to climb.
