Hartford to Berlin (CT-13) - Selective Herbicide Application

Selective control of incompatible woody vegetation that is still growing after vegetation maintenance in areas from Hartford to Berlin.

Why Are We Doing This Project?

Vegetation near or that can fall on high-voltage lines can cause safety issues and power outages for thousands of customers. 

To improve system performance, especially during severe weather events, arborists evaluate each right-of-way project prescribing utility vegetation best management practices.

We will selectively control incompatible woody vegetation that is growing in the right of way corridors. This work supports promotes compatible and stable low-growing plant communities that will resist invasion of tall growing tree species and provides benefit to local ecology and biodiversity. This work is worked once every 4-years.

Where Is The Work Being Done?

We'll be selectively controlling incompatible woody vegetation that is growing in areas from Hartford to Berlin, with work crossing the following towns: Berlin, Hartford, Rocky Hill and Wethersfield.

When Is The Work Being Done?

This project is planned for 2024. Specific project dates and details for those adjacent to the rights of way work will be informed via mailed letter, informational door hanger and in-person conversation. 

Community Outreach

Beginning with municipal briefings and other community outreach efforts such as mailings and door-to-door outreach, we engage the community throughout the lifecycle of a project to provide information, answer questions and address concerns.

We're committed to updating neighbors, businesses and the community about vegetation management activities in the project area.
