Winter right-of-way maintenance

Posted on Nov 29 2018 in Kankakee Valley REMC

Maintaining the rights-of-way along which Kankakee Valley REMC power lines pass is a year-round job, not just during the growing season. Here’s this winter’s tree-trimming schedule.

KV REMC is conducting tree trimming maintenance along the rights-of-way of our distribution lines. To provide members with safe and reliable electric service, the REMC keeps trees trimmed back year round to decrease outages caused by fallen tree limbs during storms with high
winds, heavy snow or ice.

We appreciate your cooperation as we trim in your area. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.

Our contractors are working in the following areas in the northeastern quarter of our service territory:

• LaPorte County: Lincoln and Johnson townships and portions of Prairie and Hanna townships;
• St. Joseph County: Liberty and Lincoln townships;
• Starke County: Center, Davis, Jackson, Oregon and Washington townships.
