AT&T told WWL-TV Tuesday they own one of the poles and will remove it once utility companies transfer their equipment to a new pole.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also stated another pole that is leaning will be removed in a few months as part of the SELA Drainage Project. However, the Corps did not state who owned the pole.

Entergy said they do not own any of the leaning poles but are taking the initiative by installing new poles.
