NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS Appalachian Power plans to maintain a portion of its power line rights of way in West Virginia through aerial application of registered herbicides.

Right-of-way maintenance agreements between the company and landowners are available to those preferring to accept responsibility for clearing the right of way crossing their property in lieu of aerial herbicide applications.

Maps showing the location of rights of way to be maintained in their areas also are available for inspection.
