Woodbury to Southington (CT-21) - Reliability   

Conducting tree removals in the transmission right of way, outside the existing extent of clearing, from Woodbury to Southington.

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.

Reliability programs focus on long-term transmission system reliability and resiliency by increasing the maintained width of the right-of-way up to 100 feet from the outermost conductor or the easement edge, whichever is closer.

This program improves system reliability by reducing the risk of tree fall-in and has proven to be an effective way to create a sustainable environment of vegetation that can safely coexist with the transmission lines. Our long-term management objective is to manage these newly cleared areas as early succession habitat and encourage the growth of grasses, forbs and shrubs.

Where Is The Work Being Done?

We will be working to expand the existing maintained cleared areas from Woodbury to Southington, with work crossing the following towns: Bethlehem, Southington, Thomaston, Waterbury, Watertown, Woodbury and Wolcott.

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.

Have Questions?

Keeping the lines of communication open is an important part of our work in your community.
