[ARCHIVED] Eversource Notice of Maintenance Work-off Washington St.

In accordance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts regulations (220 CMR 22.00), Eversource is hereby providing notice of planned and scheduled vegetation maintenance work on the transmission right-of-way (ROW)  that is located within your town or city limits this year. 

The vegetation work will involve the removal of tree(s) marked with an “x” within or alongside the ROW.  The removal work will be performed by qualified line clearance contractors and may include off-road bucket crews or manual climbing crews.  The work to be performed is the removal of a large arborvitae hedge located on your property. 


In order to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the transmission system, we are required to manage vegetation so that it does not encroach upon the energized conductors.  The work noted in your area will ensure that we obtain the clearances required to prevent vegetation encroachment.  This work is being scheduled for the Spring/Summer 2019.  The wood can be left per property owner’s request.


As required by the regulations, you are being informed of this proposed work through this letter. We are also required to submit this notice to you through a door hanger or e-mail.
