Power line easements getting treated this month


Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative (FLEC) will be utilizing a contractor, Southeast Woodland Services, to perform herbicide treatments of existing power line easements and rights of way.  Southeast Woodland Services employees will be working in easements in the Tellico Plains, Maryville, Friendsville, Madisonville, Greenback, and Chilhowee communities over the next few weeks.  The Cooperative is required to maintain the vegetation in accordance with state and national guidelines.
