On Monday, February 5th, tree crews contracted by Rural Electric began vegetation management in the Palmyra area. The crews began their work at the Palmyra substation, marked in red on the map below, and continued along the east circuit highlighted in green on the map below. The crews delivered notices to homes along each circuit that they worked on. They used well-marked vehicles and mostly worked during the weekdays. If you see unmarked vehicles or suspicious activity around our lines, please let us know immediately.
These line maintenance efforts will help greatly in reducing line loss, power blinks, and outages. If any RECC member would like free mulch from this project, or if there are additional questions, please contact the office at 217-438-6197.
