Commonwealth Edison has informed the City about tree trimming scheduled to take place this fall in various sections of Geneva.
Beginning in November, ComEd crews will be trimming trees away from electric lines in the following areas:
Route 25 and the Illinois Prairie Path; and
River Lane, Stevens Street, Seventh Street, South Street, and Western Avenue.
While the City of Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd runs power lines through the community to our substations as well as neighboring municipalities. The company states its vegetation management program helps ensure electrical reliability since tree branch contact with power lines is a leading cause of outages.
ComEd will be notifying affected residents about tree trimming taking place in their neighborhood. Maps and more information also can be found on the City’s website.
Residents who have questions or concerns with ComEd’s program can call the company at 800-334-7661.
