Beginning next week, Entergy Louisiana contractors will be walking neighborhoods in the Lake Charles, Jennings, and Lafayette areas documenting and mapping Entergy’s underground electrical facilities.

This work, according to Entergy, will be done over the course of several few weeks in their service territory as they work to improve service for customers.

The contracting company doing that work is called Osmose Utility Service, Inc. Entergy says that Osmose employees will have Osmose trucks with Entergy logos, indicating that they are approved Entergy contractors. They will be wearing badges to identify themselves as Osmose employees as well as have a letter authorizing them as an approved Entergy contractor.

If a customer is not home for the contractor to access the property, they will leave a door hanger with contact information, so they can arrange to return.
