Document Description
The project is limited to the removal of trees and brush within a riparian area on the north side of an unnamed tributary to Bear Slough. Vegetation maintenance is required to maintain a safe clearance between the high voltage transmission line and cause power outages or fires. The trees have been determined to be potentially dangerous to the power line this summer, therefore PG&E is required to clear vegetation within the utility right-of-way that has grown into the clearance zone and poses a risk to the transmission line.
