Appalachian Power

To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power Company plans to manage vegetation along the Clendenin – Elk River portion of its 34 kilovolt distribution system in Kanawha, Roane, and Clay County, WV. On or about January 4th, 2016, tree crews will begin trimming trees away from power lines. In unmaintained or undeveloped areas cuttings will remain on site so as to minimize soil disturbance and to promote biodegradation.
Rights-of-way in this area involved in the program are: Falling Rock Rd., RR 119, RR 4, Kelly Hill Rd., Dry Ridge, Maywood Ave., Cobb Station and numerous other small streets and side roads near the above mentioned areas.
Representatives will attempt to personally contact resident property owners at least seven business days prior to working on their property. Specifics regarding your property may be discussed at that time. If you are a nonresident property owner and have questions regarding our right-of-way maintenance they may be directed to:
