Line Clearing and Bush Control
PUC Services Inc. recognizes the value of trees to our environment; however, any tree growing near overhead power lines threatens the integrity of the electrical distribution system. Trees are the cause of costly and annoying power interruptions. To reduce the number of outages and to reduce the associated safety hazards to the public and our utility workers, PUC Services must control the growth of all vegetation in proximity to the power lines.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of our line clearing program in 2021 in the Prince Lake/ Hill Rd areas.
The planned work involves the removal of all trees within 3 M, I Oft of the existing Electrical Distribution System corridor. Mature trees that are encroaching within the recommended clearances (as set by the Electrical Safety Authority) or pose a threat to the line will be removed to maintain electrical reliability and prevent electrical contacts by people or wildlife. All branches and brush will be chipped, the wood will be cut up into firewood length and will remain on site for Landowner use. Only the Electrical Right of Way into the intersection of Prince Lake and Hill Rd will be treated with Garlon RTU to prevent regrowth of woody vegetation. The Electrical ROW around the lake will not be treated with Garlon RTU.
The herbicide is a critical tool for PUC Services to maintain our electrical ROW free from regrowth of woody vegetation after it has been cut/brushed out while it will promote greases and wildflowers which increasing Pollinators in the area.
This program will occur in selected areas along our electrical Right of Way where your property may border the power line allowances. If you require further information, please contact the undersigned at (705-542-6219)
