Right-of-way spraying focuses on reliability

Right-of-way spraying focuses on reliability

Rock Energy Cooperative has once again contracted with Stantec Corp. to perform spraying along road rights-of-way and co-op easements as part of its vegetation management program.

For several years, Stantec has done an excellent job assisting the co-op in managing woody plants and trees along electric lines. Vegetation management is an important part of making sure electricity continues to flow to our members.

Stantec crews will be out July through September assessing vegetation needs and selectively applying herbicides to brush and trees that are generally 1-6’ tall. Trees, shrubs, and vines that are incompatible for the right-of-way are selectively targeted by applicators using handheld sprayers. There will be 1-3 Stantec crews working most weekdays thorough September, so you can expect to see Stantec vehicles (white with the Stantec name) and staff in your area. Stantec employees are specialists and certified to spray in both Wisconsin and Illinois.

Stantec will work between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will never ask to come into your home or business. If you have questions, please call Rock Energy at 866-752-4550 during normal business hours.
