DUKE ENERGY - HERBICIDE WORK WITHIN RIGHT-OF-WAY

As part of Duke Energy’s continuing commitment to provide safe and reliable electrical service to our communities, we must invest in the proper care and maintenance of the transmission infrastructure.  Part of this maintenance program involves vegetation management within our right-of-way corridor. In order to ensure continued reliable electric service, crews will be applying herbicide to the IO 69Kv transmission power line corridor. Applications will be made by qualified personnel using an EPA registered non-restricted use herbicide selective to the woody stem vegetation species needing control. Affected landowners will be notified prior to work commencing on their property. This work is scheduled to begin in October and end in November. This letter constitutes the notice required by Florida Statute 163.3209.

The IO69kV is a 27.55 mile right-of-way that starts at the Dunnellon Substation located at 10995 North Florida Ave. Dunnellon, Florida and ends at the Silver Springs Substation located at 3001 South East 36th Ave. Ocala, Florida.
