  • ROW and the Emerald Ash Borer
  • Our ROW crews will be working throughout our service territory of 41 towns now and into the fall. We make every effort to inform members of ROW cutting ahead of time, but we cannot guarantee prior notification due to our crews' rapidly changing schedules.

    Questions or concerns? Contact our interim Right-Of-Way Coordinator Mike Myers at 802-224-2339.

    Washington Electric appreciates your understanding as we work to improve reliability in your area. Thank you!

    All members on whose property our ROW crews will be working will be notified by phone and/or email beforehand. To ensure you receive notices of ROW cutting, please keep your phone number and email address up-to-date by calling 802-223-5245.

    Remember: Always be prepared for unexpected outages.

    Please note that all ROW work is done by mechanical means. No herbicide chemicals are used.
