MEA is committed to providing safe, reliable power to our members. Effective vegetative management is vital in the effort to reduce tree-related outages. For the safety of the public and crews, please keep clear of the work zone while crews are accessing and clearing rights-of-way. Call 761-9306 or 761-9267 with any questions.
2017-2022 Clearing Map
We will be clearing all vegetation within the full width of the easement with mowing machines, bucket trucks and hand cutting. All trees and brush in the easement will be disposed of with a chipping machine. Logs of 6 inches in diameter will be stacked along the easement for use by our members. Stumps no higher than 4 inches may be left. Please remove all items from easement in the area including vehicles, animals, equipment and unlock all fences and gates. We ask that all members, especially children stay away from clearing activity for their safety and that of our crews. Members will receive an auto-call ahead of clearing activity in their neighborhood and a door hanger within 4 days of clearing activity on their property.
