PSE&G Vegetation Management to begin January 2022
NOTICE OF UPCOMING VEGETATION MANGEMENT WORK
Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) maintains electric transmission corridors or “rights-of-way” through Washington Township. The electric transmission lines on PSE&G rights-of-way are essential for PSE&G to meet its commitment to provide safe, reliable and efficient electric service to consumers throughout New Jersey.
Maintaining the vegetation along these transmission lines for proper tree clearance is absolutely necessary to assure:
• The continued safety of homeowners living near the transmission lines.
• The safety of PSE&G employees and contractors working on the power lines.
• The reliability of the electric utility system.
Maintenance of vegetation on rights-of-way is required at this time. Private contractors working for PSE&G, will perform vegetation management in compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements which will include removal of incompatible trees within the PSE&G rights-of-way and trimming of branches originating from trees outside the rights-of-way that hang over or cross onto the rights-of-way. This work will begin on/after January 1, 2022 and will continue throughout 2022.
Prior to the start of work a contractor’s representative will notify the effected property owners of more specific dates for when crews will be performing work in your area.
If you have any questions or concerns, please telephone Public Service Electric & Gas Transmission Vegetation Management Department at 732-289-5292.
