Hydro One - Vegetation Maintenance Program
Hydro One is scheduled to complete vegetation maintenance on the right-of-way in Oliver Paipoonge in 2021. Hydro One performs routine maintenance to ensure the safety and reliability of their power lines. This work is essential to prevent unnecessary service interruptions, allow easy and safe access for their crews to perform emergency repairs on the power lines and to keep the right-of-way safe for public use.
The work on the right-of-way in Oliver Paipoonge will include the removal of incompatible vegetation, including brush (vegetation less than four inches in diameter) and dead, diseased or hazardous trees. Vegetation that requires removal will be marked with orange paint/tape and the vegetation that requires trimming will be marked with yellow paint/tape. If trees are removed from your property, all wood will be left on-site. In areas where there is a higher density of brush, mechanical equipment may be used.
