For safety reasons, there are occasions when Nelson Hydro must trim vegetation to avoid close contact with powerlines. Sometimes these activities require power outages and are kept to a minimum and communicated in advance to minimize customer impact.
Keep an eye out for sandwich boards on the street, notices through social media, or crews knocking on your door to notify you of upcoming vegetation and tree trimming. You can also sign-up up for automatic alerts on your cell phone.
