This is a 200A OH service, there is a visible violation, with a rusty noodle in the panel due to it, probably old hat to the ECN crew and those whom do 'dripping' panel' service calls...

Certainly a violation of 230.54 (C). A better drip loop would also fix the problem.(The violation would remain however) Also the weatherhead should not be angled like that.

I've taken to stuffing my weatherheads with dux seal in the last few years, as a hedge to noodlitis....

Sparky,

Just curious here, in the Meter enclosures you use now is the Neutral connection in the middle?

The reason I ask is the ones we use now for the last couple of years have the Neutral connection moved to the left side and out of the central 'drip-zone'
