Home Inspection Pine, Colorado Main electrical service line

During the home inspection it was noted that the main electrical service line was only about 3 feet above the ground. This is a serious safety and fire hazard and should be corrected ASAP.

The overhead service drop conductors have inadequate height clearance from the ground. Safe building practices require the following clearances:
1.  10 feet above a walkway (including decks and balconies).
2.  12 feet above a drive
3.  18 feet above a roadway.
The home failed to comply with number _1__.
I recommend that you consult with a qualified contractor to discuss options and costs for correction. Any work on the service conductors should be performed by a qualified electrical contractor only.
