Just Gas, at a resonable price PUBLIC NOTICES Inspection project Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative will be conducting inspections of its facilities throughout 2014. Specific vegetation man- agement projects planned within the tim- bered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Calpine. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of outages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather conditions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proximity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment. Our vegetation management is conducted following best management prac- tices defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric ser- vice. We will be inspecting electrical equip- ment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require ~cess to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them.
