Met Ed Starting Line Maintenance Soon

NOTICE: The electric company will be conducting power line maintenance soon so be cautious of tree crews while driving on our area streets.

Here is a short description of the work.

Trees are a leading cause of electrical power outages. In fact when trees and power lines touch it creates a very dangerous situation that may even be deadly to anyone in close proximity.

To help ensure reliable and safe electric service, FirstEnergy’s Vegetation Management Program works to keep our transmission and distribution rights-of-way free of incompatible trees and other vegetation.

Professional vegetation management crews assess each situation to determine the best approach to prevent trees from interfering with electrical facilities. Based on this assessment, they may use power saws, EPA-approved herbicides, mechanical equipment, or a combination of methods to control the vegetation.
