City of Pittsburgh public swimming pool. The security camera cable run above the swimming pool appears to be in violation of NEC section 680.8....."Overhead Conductor Clearances". According to the 1999 NEC Code
Handbook (McGraw-Hill), the exceptions are only for Utility Company lines provided the clearance dimensions in Table 680.8 are observed.

By the 1999 NEC,there's an exception for CATV coaxial cables to have a clearance of 10 feet if they comply with Art. 820. If this is a security camera, it is CCTV, and doesn't comply, but I can't see that there would be a difference in the safety aspect. What do you think?
Realistically, the installer should have carried something larger than an 8' ladder.

electure,

I feel there would not be a difference in the safety aspect. However, as you stated, it does not compy with NEC.
