Hydro One Vegetation Maintenance Program Work in Augusta & Spencerville

Hydro One forestry crews will be conducting work along the rights of way in part of the Township of Augusta and in Spencerville late in 2020 and into early 2021.

The route to be done has been identified in blue on the map above and residents have been notified via mail if work is to be done on their specific property.

Hydro One performs routine maintenance to ensure the safety and reliability of our power lines. This work is essential to prevent unnecessary service interruptions, allow easy and safe access for our 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 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 blue 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.

If you have any questions regarding the planned work, please contact Brad Plaunt at 613-570-0048 or by email at bradplaunt@hydroone.com.
