Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) has notified the City it intends to perform tree trimming activities near its power lines in Geneva during January.
The vegetation management program will take place along Heartland Drive east of Peck Road. While the City owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd does have power lines and infrastructure that runs through Geneva.
According to ComEd, this maintenance program helps ensure electric reliability since tree contact with tree branches is a leading cause of power outages. ComEd has notified impacted property owners of this upcoming work taking place in their neighborhood.
In December, ComEd performed similar operations south of Fargo Boulevard between Dunstan Road and Western Avenue.
