Re: Cable Wrapped Around Power Line (again)

said by Robotics:

Both Comcast and the power company have been out here twice, and both say there is nothing they can do. Although the power company has untangled it on both occasions.

The power company is concerned about the legal liability they might have if the insulation were to wear through and the Comcast cable was not properly grounded. They may also be concerned about outages (and even possible power company property damage) if the insulation were to wear through and the Comcast cable was properly grounded (I think the fireworks display in that scenario was previously mentioned in this thread). OTOH, the power company does not have the authority to do anything with Comcast's cable other than temporarily correct the potential problem by untangling the cables.
