Every month in this section, we’ll tell you where our maintenance and construction crews will be and what they will be doing.  

Right-Of-Way Maintenance

Contract tree trimming crews will continue trimming trees and overgrown vegetation in the following areas:

Porter County: Jackson, Pine, and Washington townships
Starke County: Center, Washington, California and North Bend townships

Pole Maintenance

KV REMC crews work year-round to maintain and improve the electrical distribution system.  As part of this maintenance our crews conduct regular pole inspections.  Member-consumers in the Hanna and Union Mills areas will see our crews replacing poles in their areas this month.
