ComEd intends to perform vegetation management activities on a distribution circuit in Niles, during the time period of April through June, 2015. The vegetation management activities are a key component of ComEd’s maintenance program to ensure system electrical reliability, as vegetation contact with ComEd equipment is a leading cause of outages.
In accordance with applicable statutory requirements, ComEd is required to provide each affected municipality a map or common addresses of the area affected by the vegetation management activities. This map, illustrating geographic areas where trimming may occur, is attached below.
Qualified line-clearance workers contracted by ComEd will be performing the tree pruning work. Supervisors and General Foremen will be in close contact with the crews, ensuring that the work is performed properly.
ComEd has notified any affected customers and property owners. For more information about vegetation maintenance along power lines and ComEd’s “Right Tree, Right Place” program, please visit: http://www.comed.com/trees
