Notice of upcoming PSE&G vegetation management work in Byram Township
Posted: October 21, 2020
Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) maintains one or more electric transmission corridors or "rights-of-way" through your municipality. 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 in your municipality is required at this time; please see the attachments for additional information and map(s) . A list of the nearest cross streets has also been provided. 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, 2021 and will continue throughout 2021. Prior to the start of work a contractor's representative will notify your municipality and the effected property owners in your community 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.
